At the North Tonawanda Public Library kids of all ages were put- ting down the books and picking up some life long skills.

It’s all part of the annual NT Library Con 2018, a Fantom Convention. The event was created by students and focuses on developing team building skills.

Organizers says some of the events on hand included pubic speaking, board games and special guest artists.

“We have the kids create and design their own panels,” said Kelly Menzel, Event Organizer.

“It teaches them public speaking skills, organizational skills, and how to create an effective presentation. Also, how to work with an audience that ranges from ages 3 to 100.”

“The kids will have to use these skills in school for their class presentations and if they go to college they will use the skills there. In general, it is a good life skill to have to be able to work with people that you have never met before.”

This is the 4th year they have held the event and organizers hope it will be even bigger next year.
