The Cosplay Contest is very simple! Come to our event in costume & take a picture of yourself--we're even providing a photo-op station at the Library! Then, post the pic to social media by 9:00 PM Saturday and tag it #bwpeugfcbd2023. If you prefer, ask a volunteer to take a pic & we'll post it to our account. Then, on Sunday we'll contact all the winners!

ECCO High School
is is an alternative high school here in Eugene offering a state-accredited diploma through credit recovery opportunities and GED programs. They stress equity, community, and self-advocacy through trauma informed teaching practices, as well as offering students smaller class sizes for more personalized instruction.
ECCO is in the process of rebuilding their library, but has a limited budget. Well, we thought a great way to help out would be to run a book drive! We're encouraging folks to bring in gently used books or purchase new books to help ECCO build a rockin' library! You'll get raffle tickets for your donation, so not only will you be helping local students, you'll get the chance to win cool prizes!
You're welcome to bring in books you already own to have signed. We will also have a TON of books by our visiting creators available for purchase at the shop. PLEASE NOTE: Books cannot be purchased on site at the library, so swing by the shop on your way to the library!
If you have any more questions, please feel free to get in touch!
