There will be a Holiday Cosplay Tea Party sponsored by the Maine Association of Cosplay Enthusiasts and Cirque du Geek from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the first-floor Bartlett Teen Room. The library encourages those attending to “dress in your finest holiday cosplays – or just normal cosplay or even not in cosplay; the more the merrier.” The tea party is a potluck event, with MACE supplying the tea. Attendees are encouraged to bring snacks to share. In cosplay, participants dress as characters from anime, manga or other cartoons, or video games.
