CBLDF Webinars: Retailing to Schools & Libraries with Jennifer Haines

The second of the CBLDF’s new webinar series features Jennifer Haines, owner of The Dragon, sharing the secrets of selling comics to schools and libraries.

More than ever, schools and libraries are eager to include comics, and no one is better positioned to help them navigate the landscape than comic book retailers! This training-focused webinar teaches how to develop relationships with local schools & libraries, how to use academic language to communicate the pedagogical value of comics, how to identify and promote services and incentives to boost student visits, and which activities are best suited for student engagement.

Jennifer Haines, M.A., B.Ed., is owner of The Dragon, an award-winning comics and games store headquartered in Guelph, Ontario. She is also Comics PRO Vice-President and a member of the Ontario College of Teachers. With over ten years of experience as an educator and extensive knowledge of comics, Ms. Haines is in a unique position to help comic retailers build a school client base.
