Imagi-Con 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 those interested to explore their interests, inspire creativity, and learn about local industry careers and artistry opportunities.

Special Guests: Browse artist tables, displays from local comic retailers, industry leaders in gaming technology, and other local organizations. 

Gaming: Participate in both vintage and modern electronic video and board gaming, including Nintendo, Sega, Super Nintendo, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii and many more.   

Cosplay Showcase: Come dressed in your best costume and stop by Studio I in the teen Loft to participate in our Teen Cosplay Showcase. 

Children Activities: Spangler Library will host a variety of activities throughout the day tailored specifically to ages 0-11. This includes Superhero Storytime, Superhero Story Explorers, Cape and Mask stations, Superhero movie marathon in the Block, and a Cosplay Parade.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is where many young people are first introduced to comics through the graphic novel and manga collections housed at each and every branch. Imagi-Con aims to recognize and celebrate this interest in comics and grow the audience for the genre.  

We hope to see you at Imagi-Con!
