By Martin County Library System June 12, 2024

The Martin County Library System (MCLS) is excited to host its 9th annual Fanfest, taking place Saturday, July 13, 2024 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Teens and tweens ages 11-18 are invited to attend at Blake Library, 2351 SE Monterey Road in Stuart. This free event (which does not require advanced registration) is sponsored The Library Foundation of Martin County, Inc.

Fanfest was initially conceived in 2015 as a celebration of superhero, comic, anime/manga and various pop culture fandom, and has become the pinnacle summertime event for young adults at MCLS. Similar to past events, attendees will partake in video games, crafts, photobooth, trivia, and snacks, and costumes are encouraged. All attendees will receive one raffle ticket for a chance at prize giveways, and those in costume will receive an extra raffle ticket. Members of the local 501st Legion, a Star Wars costuming organization, are scheduled to make a guest appearance!

This year’s event was planned by a committee of library staff, led by the MCLS Teen Specialist. A full listing of services and events specific to teens, including volunteer opportunities and Summer Reading Program information, can be located at:
