Join us on Saturday, July 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the ImaginOn building for our 4th annual ImagiCon event. ImagiCon is a library festival that celebrates culture surrounding comic books, graphic novels, manga, anime, fandoms, and gaming.
The program is for ages 0-18 and their families, and its aim is to provide a safe space for fans to explore their interests, inspire creativity, and learn about local industry careers and artistry opportunities.
Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is where many young people are first introduced to comics through the graphic novel and manga collections housed at each branch. ImagiCon aims to recognize and celebrate this interest in comics and grow the audience for the genre.
Activities and Programs:
Workshops & Panels: Attend exciting activities for the entire family including a LEGO Panel discussion, Comic Drawing 101, DIY Costumes and Cosplay, and more.
Special Guests: Browse artist tables, displays from local comic retailers, industry leaders in gaming technology, and other local organizations.
