Cardiff Libraries @ the Cardiff International Comic & Animation Expo

Just some of the services on offer from us that weekend include:

Cardiff Libraries Table: Come along to chat to your friendly neighbourhood librarians! You can join Cardiff Libraries, check out the comics, graphic novels, manga and anime books and DVDs we have for loan as well as finding out about all the events that go on in libraries across the city.

Zombie Make-up Demo: each session lasts 30mins; there will be a demonstration of zombie make-up technique and the chance to be styled as a zombie! The library table also makes a good zombie feeding ground; our borrowers have big, tasty braaaaaains.

Living Comic: Read, write and be part of a comic! The Bookworm is a villain with no imagination. Foil his plans to steal the plots of books, help him further his evil schemes, create a superhero to prevent his attempt at world domination or just have a look at what others have written and drawn already. Open to all ages!
