Library to hold Librari-Con Oct. 19

Clermont County Public Library is packing everything cool about books, movies, TV and pop culture under one roof for an upcoming free, after-hours event.

The 2013 Librari-Con is expected to be a hit with teens and young adults. Inspired by the famous Comic-Cons and Mini-Cons across the country, it will bring enthusiasts together in a conference-style event at the library.

The Librari-Con will feature live performances by the Muses of Mayhem dance troupe, the Mayan Ruins tribal collective and Aloysius Fox of the Pandora Society’s Steampunk Symposium. There will also be hands-on demonstrations, workshops, contests and more.

“We’ve never done anything like this before and it should be really exciting,” said Adam Baker, Clermont County Public Library Communications Manager. “It’s a perfect one-stop-shop for fans. They can come for one of the scheduled performances, or just show up during the event and check out everything going on.”

Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite characters from books, graphic novels, movies or TV. However, no weapons or weapon replicas are allowed. There will be a costume contest with several categories and prizes.

The Librari-Con is 6 -8:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19 at Clermont County Public Library’s Union Township Branch located at 4450 Glen Este-Withamsville Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45245.
