Schedule of Events
Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change, and more details will be available soon.
A Note for Parents:
Please remember that our Unattended Children Policy requires all children ages 8 and under to be accompanied by a person age 16 or older. This means staying near the child, not just remaining in the building or on separate floors. Comic Con is a busy event, and library staff cannot be responsible for monitoring your child's location.
We thank you for your cooperation!
