Welcome to the Great GeekFest!

The Great GeekFest is a celebration of all the things people geek out over. Come and share what you’re geeky for in the home of all geekdoms: the Library. Whether you’re a die hard cosplayer, a video game nut or a casual fan there’s something to entertain you all day.

Admission is FREE and all ages are welcome to attend. We've even got an area for the littlest of "geeks."
