Free Comic Book Day & OkeCon 2018
May 5th, 2018
Return of the 'Con
We’re happy to announce that the third annual OkeCon will take place on May 5, 2018! Join us and your fellow swamp-kin for good, geeky fun.
It is our privilege to provide you with quality programs and resources with the help of the Institute of Museum and Library Services! You can help us by asking your representatives to support funding for libraries.
In collaboration with Diamond Comic Distributors, the Okefenokee Regional Library System will be hosting Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2018 at:
Waycross-Ware County Public Library (WCPL) – 401 Lee Avenue Waycross, GA 31501
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Free comics will be available at the kids’ circulation desk while supplies last. Comics will be available by reservation at other library branches for those unable to make it to the Waycross library.
Stay up to date with the Free Comic Book Day / OkeCon 2018 Facebook event.
