We are excited to announce the return of the Carolina Manga Library for Zenkaikon 2018! The Library will be set up on the third floor of the Montgomery House all weekend long. Librarians will also be presenting the panel "Great Graphic Novels You Should Be Reading" during convention.
The Carolina Manga Library is a 501(c)(3) organization that was formed for the express purposes of promoting literacy through graphic novels. They operate a traveling library that sets up at conventions and other shows to provide free access to their collection of over 5000 manga, American graphic novels, newspaper comic strips, and artbooks. Carolina Manga Library staff run the library and operate all days of the convention. They pride themselves on having actual certified librarians on staff who are well trained in reader's advisory services. The Carolina Manga Library has been a guest a many conventions since their conception in 2013, including Ohayocon, Matsuricon, and Anime Central.
More details and hours of operation can be found on the Manga Library page.
