Fandomonium celebrates pop culture

Posted

Batman, Klingons, storm troopers and Gryffindors were just a few of the characters that could be found Nov. 3 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds for the Jeffco Library’s Fandomonium.

Free to the public, Fandomonium was a celebration of all things pop culture.

“One of the things we try to do is create accessible experiences,” said Cindy Jaye, public services manager for Jeffco Libraries. “Some similar events are very expensive and they aren’t within reach of a lot of people. Our goal was to make something that was for everybody … youngest kids to adults.”

Fandomonium included a variety of activities from a cross-fandom murder mystery to a potion making station, a silent disco and classic ‘80 arcade games.

Jaye said, the event, which was inspired by comic conventions, makes sense for the library because those events celebrate books, TV shows, movies and games — all things the library does.

“We would like the community in Jeffco to know that the library is for them and we have tons of stuff,” Jaye said. “We love books. But we are about much more than books.”
