UTD Welcome Week Line-Up Includes Library Cosplay Event, Free Popcorn

Eugene McDermott Library is welcoming students back to school with BookCon 2014, a cosplay event scheduled in the Library lobby. The event will take place on September 4th from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to dress up as their favorite book character.

There will be numerous contests as well as giveaways. Prizes, including time in a Zip Car and a Kindle Fire, will be given for best costume and fan favorite. An Amazon gift card will be awarded for the best Facebook selfie posted on the Library’s social media page. Participants will also have a chance to visit tables set up around the lobby and learn about Library services. Each table will offer smaller prizes.

A photo booth and cotton candy machine will also be set up in the lobby.

In addition to BookCon 2014, the Library is giving away free popcorn to those who check out a movie in Multimedia Services. The free popcorn begins on August 31st, just in time for the Labor Day break. It ends on September 6th or when supplies run out.
