It’s time to break out the cape and tights, the Barrie Public Library is hosting a Comic Con. The downtown branch is the place to be tomorrow from 9:30 to 4:00, for the free, all-ages event celebrating everything comic book. Folks are being encouraged to dress up as their favourite character. Melissa Laing, the library’s Marketing and Special Projects Co-ordinator, says it’s a great way for new readers to get their feet wet.
She adds there’s a big push to let folks know the Barrie Public Library isn’t just about reading.
Saturday marks the first ever Comic Con for the Barrie Public Library, and promises local vendors, cosplay contests, workshops, and face painting.
