Electric City Comic Con
These talented artists and authors will be located inside the library in "Artists Alley." Stop-by to meet them, purchase their books, get them signed and chat with these amazing artists! You can see many of our artists at various workshops and programs throughout the day as well.
Be sure to visit our "Comics Commons" area outdoors in front of the library. We are featuring comic related artisans, dealers, and organizations.
Friends of the Schenectady County Public Library
The Friends of the library fund raise and support all public programming at SCPL (among many other things!) Their efforts made our Comic Con possible. They will be selling fantasy, manga, science fiction and other used books to help raise funds for the library. The friends also run the popular Whitney Book Corner used book store on the corner of Union and Clinton St. Stop-by to join the Friends of the Library or learn about our new Junior Friends group.
