P.S. – Superhero fans might want to check out the Sunshine & Superheroes exhibit opening today at the Oakland Museum, featuring vintage comic books, Comic-Con paraphernalia, superhero outfits and an interactive photo booth complete with costumes for visitors to try on. Don’t forget that the Oakland Museum is part of the library’s Discover & Go program, where you can use your OPL card to get free or discounted passes to museums throughout the Bay Area.
