Batman Turns 78!

This September the Caped Crusader celebrates his 78th birthday. That’s right Batman has been around for 78 years!

I was going to add up all his TV series, movies, and cartoons. But there’s too many to count! And that’s not even including all the comics.

Check our events to see if your local library is hosting a Batman themed program to celebrate.
