Conventions celebrating comics, anime, movies, and fandom are hugely popular. They allow us to feel comfortable to "geek" out and share our love of pop culture with others. Library staff also love these conventions and created a local mini-convention to connect our community with wonderful activities. Started by librarian Ann Mount, Lib-Con made its debut in 2014 and continues to grow each year.

A Family Talking to a VendorGoals of Lib-Con

We want to provide everyone with a fun experience and celebrate the inner geek in us all. This event is a way for enthusiasts, and others who may be interested, to gather and engage in a number of activities. Come out, have fun, meet new people, and spend time with family and friends. All in all, help build the love for anime, manga, fandoms, and more in Abilene.

Major conventions can be too far or costly to attend. Your library is connecting you with the features of a convention on a smaller scale. With a variety of activities hosted, we encourage everyone to come out and join us. Even if you’re unfamiliar with what Lib-Con is all about, attending our events will offer you a great opportunity to change that.
