Get prepared to Geek Out @ Your Library as Lib-Con is just around the corner, running October 5-7 across all three public library branches. Lib-Con is the annual event that brings you a host of programming and activities all centered around anime, manga, comics, fandoms, superheroes, and more. Having started in 2014, library staff work each year to put together a great lineup of family-friendly events to offer, at no charge, to the community. We invite you to visit the library’s Lib-Con Page Online to stay up-to-date on what will be happening this year.
This year, activities will be hosted across all three library branches, expanding your opportunities to participate this year. Evening programming will be hosted at your Mockingbird Branch on Thursday, October 5 starting at 4:30PM and running until closing. Activities for that evening will include a Barbie Mystery Challenge, escape rooms, crafting sessions, a large scale deception game, sewing basics for Cosplay workshop, scavenger hunts, and more.
That will be followed up on Friday, October 6 with an evening of fun hosted at your South Branch Library. Again, activities will begin at 4:30PM, and although the library usually closes at 6:00PM, activities will continue after hours until 8:00PM. Activities featured this evening include a life-sized Mario Kart activity, Star Wars crafts, escape rooms, storytimes, a Star Wars trivia contest, animal mask papercrafting, and more.
This will all lead up to the final day of Lib-Con on Saturday, October 7 where activities will be hosted at your Main Library featuring a Dungeons & Dragons movie and craft session, escape rooms, crafting workshops, and more. Plus, the day will close with the featured event of each year’s Lib-Con, the Costume Contest where kids, teens, and adults will have the opportunity to show off their costuming skills to compete for great prizes.
We hope you’re able to join us this year for our next Lib-Con series running October 5-7. Feel free to visit our website to keep up with all your Lib-Con Information, and connect with us on our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
