DOZENS of young people gathered in Huddersfield Library to celebrate Japanese graphic novels.
Around 120 people attended the Manga-Con event.
There were games, a quiz and a raffle at the event, which was organised by Manga Management, a group of young people who meet in the library every Saturday.
Librarian Kirsty Wilson was happy with the turnout. She said: “I was absolutely amazed with how well it was attended and a lot of the young people made a real effort with their costumes.
“We want to show that libraries are for everyone. We have Manga books in every library in Kirklees and they go like hot cakes.”
This year’s Manga-Con was held at the library because it has outgrown its original venue at Waterstones.
But the book shop set up a stall at the event. Senior Waterstones book seller Claire Porter said: “Manga is fantastic because it helps literacy, especially among reluctant readers like young boys.”
