“A library is infinity under a roof” – Gail Carson Levine

This year’s Offaly Libraries Comic Con beams into Tullamore Library on Saturday, 14th September, between 10:00am- 4:00pm with a galaxy full of star attractions for lovers of pop culture!

Established in 2019, this will be the 5th instalment of what has become a highlight of Offaly Libraries’ events calendar. Comics and graphic novels, sci fi & fantasy, movies, novels, magic, imagination and fun will be the order of the day as watchers and readers, artists, cosplayers, gamers and vendors come out in force to enjoy competitions, panels, workshops, demonstrations and stall areas, with fun for all the family.

With four amazing Comic Cons already behind us, we can look back on some fantastic memories (click here to see our gallery), but the story goes on and Chapter 5 is only beginning with lots to look forward to at Offaly Libraries Comic Con 2024!

For updates on what’s happening on the day and during the build-up, watch this space or stay tuned to Offaly Libraries’ social media! Better still, why wait until September? Visit you local library to find out about all of the wonderful new worlds you can discover with a wave of your library card!
