If you want a great day out surrounded by super heroes and villains, make sure you lock Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22 into your schedule and visit council’s Vault pop-up library and gaming centre at the Epic Diem Nerd Culture Expo.
Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said due to popular demand the Vault would make an appearance at the Expo at the University of the Sunshine Coast for the third year in a row.
“This year, Sunshine Coast Libraries are creating a retro gamers paradise with life-size Connect Four, Twister and Snakes and Ladders games in the auditorium. Retro gaming with Sega arcade games will also be available plus a large range of favourite board games,” Cr McKay said.
“Interactive artist Mic Black will be bringing the Wonder Games to challenge your perception of a game controller and allow you to play games in a way you never have before.”
Cr McKay said appearing at the Vault for a panel session will be the creators of a recently published handwritten manuscript of Alice’s adventures in Wonderland.
“Cobblestone Productions just held a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign to recreate the manuscript to aid in the 150 years celebrations of Alice in Wonderland,” Cr McKay said.
“Also appearing for two panel sessions will be Bajo and Hex from ABC’s Good Game television show, discussing all things gaming.
“And the fun doesn’t stop there! There will be anime screenings courtesy of Hanibee and don’t forget to bring your best moves to compete in the Wii dance-offs.
“People can also become a library member at the Vault and gaming centre and learn all about the free collections and eResources including the new OnePlay gaming database.”
