Lib Dragon

T.O. LibCon is a pop culture convention put on by the Thousand Oaks Library that focuses on highlighting comics, anime, games, fandom, and all things geeky.
This event was inspired by large comic conventions that have national appeal and is intended to be a more affordable, local, and accessible alternative for those who for whatever reason can't make it to the larger conventions. A Cosplay Contest, Artist's Alley, Gundam Building Contest, an appearance from the 501st Legion, and an Author Talk and Signing with Jen Wang are just some of the things we have in the works for T.O. LibCon 023. This event will take place on Saturday, July 22, from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday, July 23, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm throughout the Thousand Oaks Grant R. Brimhall Library.
