OPL at the Ottawa Comiccon

Offering a Trek down Memory Lane Studded with Adventure and Imagination

Your librarians are information superheroes! Drop by our mini Bookmobile and meet them – along with artists, actors, authors, fellow fans, artisans, cosplayers and merchants galore–at the 2017 edition of the Ottawa Comiccon. This year marks the Ottawa Public Library’s sixth appearance at the Ottawa Comiccon. The Comiccon will be held from May 12 to 14 at the EY Centre.

Get a free Library card or borrow any material we have on site. We will have a little something for everyone; whether they’re stumbling out of the TARDIS, Floo-ed in from the Wizarding world, on a road trip from Riverdale, beamed down from the Enterprise, or riding the nostalgia train from De Grassi Street. For some, we can offer a deeper dive into the worlds they already cozily inhabit. For others, we have doors to a slew of new adventures.

Comiccon is about more than celebrity appearances and shopping for swag; it’s about a community coming together to celebrate all things geek. In recognition of the creative drive that goes hand in hand with that celebration, we will have some of the features from our Imagine Space, OPL’s popular makerspace onsite for con attendees to experiment and play with. Including a green screen so those who dedicate all that time and energy into the stunning cosplays that appear year after year, or those who wear their passion with pride, donning merchandise of their favourite franchises, can memorialise their con-worthy looks with fun and customizable photos.

Come celebrate with OPL and meet your superheroes at Comiccon this year!
