What is a graphic novel? Well, that seems to be open for debate also; but, the quick answer is that a graphic novel is a book or novel length comic book. Some of them are collections of serialized comic books. This is especially true with superheros and some of the science fiction comics. Many graphic novels are original publications, never before serialized.
Our library has graphic novel collections in the Children, Teen, and Adult sections of the library, with the largest section housed in the Teen area on the second floor. We have a very diverse collection ranging from the traditional superhero genre to original graphic novels to manga. Please ask a reference librarian if you'd like additional information.
