Librari*Con is a celebration of all the fandoms we know and love. Each year, we put our minds together to come up with new and fun ways to celebrate geek culture. Want to make an Ollivander wand? A light saber? Play old arcade games? Fight the Demogorgon? Show off your cosplay? Take your picture in a photo booth with your friends?
At LibrariCon you can do it all – and it’s all free! Librari*Con returns on Saturday, Nov. 4th at the Union Township Branch Library.

New this year! Due to popular demand we have added a fan art contest to Librari*Con. Show off your art skills and compete for a prize in three age categories: adult, teen and youth. The fan art entries will be judged by a professional artist. We’ll announce the winners a week after Librari*Con. We are only accepting electronic submissions of art for the contest and the deadline is Oct. 31st.
