Marantz Symposium Comics Extravaganza

Library staff showcased our library's services during this comic book author event held at Kent State University, and some of our library teens cosplayed at the event. Teen Librarian Christina and Children's Librarian (and Marantz board member) Chris offered prizes to attendees (librarians, college students and teachers) who spun the Comics Character Wheel and correctly identified the comic/anime character. Authors and artists signed their books and talked with fans, and promoted their work.

Throughout the summer the library "pops up" at some local spots to provide a story time for kids and to showcase the library's resources. People can walk up and get a library card and also check out items, from books to DVDs to our new Eclectic Collection, which includes this "Jumbie Jam" steel drum!
