Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is where many young people in the Charlotte community are first introduced to this genre through the graphic novel and manga collections at every one of our branches.  Imagi-CON aims to recognize and celebrate this interest, and grow the audience for the genre.  

We hope to see you at Imagi-CON!
