Lodi Con 2019

Once again Lodi Library con is happening and this year will be even bigger than last year's con. With Nearly twice as many artists, writers, comic sellers, and pop culture vendors, this year's convention is looking to bring a big convention feel to the Lodi Library. Along with the various vendors, there will be card game tournaments hosted by one of our generous vendors, a cosplay contest, and a writer's panel. So come in costume and be prepared to have a great time.  Sunday, September 29th, 10:00am-4:00pm. The library will be open only for the Con but closed for normal Library business (i.e. no checking out or checking in books, no library cards issued, no browsing the collection or reading newspapers or magazines, no computer use, etc).
