It's GenCon but Library Style!

For those not in the nerdy-know, Gen Con is the largest tabletop-game convention in North America by both attendance and number of events. It features traditional pen-and-paper, board, and card games, including role-playing games, miniatures wargames, live action role-playing games, collectible card games, and strategy games.

Our version, LibCon, will be a bit smaller but mighty nonetheless. In this free-form expo area, participants can check out an amazing curation of various library game and resources in a hands-on demonstration area, featuring librarians and their stuff! Think of this session as an idea fair or like a poster-session that doesn't suck...it's a way for librarians to show off games, kits, tools, apps, inventions and more in short demonstrations and conversations!
