    I was flipping through the book The Library Innovation Toolkit, and I came upon a chapter that discusses the Cumberland County Public Library program that I found fascinating. Librari-Con! Since my husband and daughter are going to Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle next weekend, I decided to look into it a little. I found that many libraries over the years have done this. Why hasn’t my library? We could enlist the help of local comic book shops (I can think of 3 just off the top of my head), local artists and writers, and we could have Spokane entertainers such as Spokane Batman and Spokane Deadpool for photo ops (yes, those are real people here in Spokane).

    • Hi there @mcoffey! Somehow I missed this post earlier in the term. What a wonderful idea! Almost any library could do this, but it sounds like Spokane’s library is especially well positioned to do so. I hope you will suggest it!
