Teen Tuesday – Intro to Fandoms June 7th @ 3:00 PM [11+]


Have you ever heard of a Fandom? Do you know what a Fandom is? Do you know what Fandoms are out there? Are you completely confused?
 

If you are (or aren’t), you can come to the Parker Williams Branch for the beginning of our Summer of Fandoms on June 7th at 3 PM.

We will be explaining what a Fandom is, what Fandoms are out there, and how to celebrate your newly found love of Fandoms. You will be able to find us in the Library Community Room.
