This March, the Youth Wing hosted its fourth annual Comic Con with the theme AfroFuturism and the Celebration of Black Nerd Culture.

The event, which drew in nearly 650 participants from across all age groups, featured science fiction writing, cartooning workshops, and a Q&A panel about the intersectionality of gender and race in nerd culture. Tweens and teens got the opportunity to have hands-on experience with the library's virtual reality technology and Lego robotics.  

 

We also had an arts and crafts stations, face painting, and photobooth. The Comic Con was huge success thanks to collaborations with the Business and Career Center, Marketing and Communications, and the Office of Neighborhood Services for allowing staff from the branches to assist.
