Insta-Con: A Pop-Up Pop Culture Convention!

Saturday July 12th    10a – 6p

Bayard Taylor Memorial Library
Kennett Square, PA


The Background Info:

You know all the cool programming we’ve started at The Shop lately? Book Club, Kids’ Club, Ladies’ Night…. These were all made possible with the direction of  @IvyNoelle.

Ivy is the newly appointed Assistant Director of the Bayard Taylor Memorial Library in KHistoric Kennett Square, PA. Her graphic novel section of BTML is the largest in the county and second in the state. She has a devoted team of teens who are committed to giving back to their community

When not traveling to librarian conventions or speaking at local schools or running events she writes for and works the counter here at The Shop!

When the BTML Teens decided to hold a comic book / nerd culture convention they asked if we would lend our experience and support. How could we say no?!

Help these kids give back to their town by coming out to see hot creators and cool workshops.  More details to come!

What’s To Do In Kennett Square: Boutiques, Gourmet Markets, Bookstores, and More!
