Comments: The event would take place on Saturday, June 13th, 2020, from 9 am to 4 pm at Stokes Brown Library in Springfield, TN. We are planning to have several rooms dedicated to specific events, like movie/anime viewings, different tabletop gaming/card games, a cosplay contest, crafts for kids, and more. Our library has never done an event like this so we are trying to start planning early. We are a public library that serves many underprivileged people in our community, who might not otherwise have access to the more expensive, fuller conventions due to ticket and travel costs and etc., so this event is to cater to our patrons who love video games, comics, anime, and other pop culture and media.  This is all the information that I have for you right now; as we plan more, more things will fall into place! This is a free, multi-fandom community event that is open to all ages and fans of all pop culture media. 

Referred by:  Have heard about the 501st from other convention events, social media, and etc.
