Announcing Band of Bards + Library Pass

June 14, 2023 (BUFFALO, NY): Band of Bards is proud to announce a new partnership with LibraryPass and their platform Comics Plus! Part of our goal at Band of Bards has always been to cultivate meaningful relationships, and to find new avenues to get our creators stories into the hands of readers. Especially important is finding a partner that shares our values, and who are doing work to better the community.
