Cosplaying Librarians Calendar & NYCC Photo Shoot!

I never realized until I started this website just how many librarians besides myself are cosplayers!  It’s been a heartwarming discovery that I’m not the only geeky-costumer-librarian out there.  To that end, I thought it would be fun to to put together a calender of cosplaying librarians for 2016!  Any librarians (or librarians-to-be!) who would like to participate can make arrangements to send me their photo that they’d like to have included in the calendar.  Simply email me at

And speaking of librarians who are cosplayers…I know that many of us will be at New York Comic Con in a couple weeks, so I’m planning a group photo shoot of all of us!  You don’t have to be involved with the calendar in order to participate.  Here’s the event page on Facebook, simply RSVP to be updated on where exactly we’ll meet:

I will be sharing the group photos here on Cosplay, Comics, and Geek Culture in Libraries as well as providing a link to where you can purchase the 2016 Cosplaying Librarians Calendar so stay tuned and keep cosplaying!
