Ottawa Comic Con 2018


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 2018 edition of the Ottawa Comiccon. This year marks the Ottawa Public Library’s seventh appearance at the Ottawa Comiccon. Comiccon will be held from May 11 to 13 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, surfaced from Atlantis, taking a break from fixing the engine on board the transport ship Serenity, beamed down from the Enterprise, or riding the nostalgia train from Green Gables. 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 the button maker, Makerbot mini 3D Printer, and more! 

Come celebrate with OPL and meet your superheroes at Comiccon this year! We’re at booth #821.

New this year is a bilingual superhero story time! Join us in Meeting Room B on Sunday, May 13th at Noon.
