Just last week, I had a student request for manga books, which are graphic 
books. The student said that a lot of kids would love to read them, and I'm 
sure she's right, but the time it would take to write up several image 
descriptions on each page is way too much. I wish there was an easy way to put 
those books in the collection, but I sure don't see it! Getting image files 
from publishers would allow dyslexic kids to read the books, but not blind ones.

Oh yes, there are lot of children's books called "graphic" books and they are 
basically just comics. I doubt the words would even scan. It would take a lot 
of work to get one of those into the collection unless the publisher donated at 
least the text. And then the pictures would still take a lot of time.
