EOPL’S TOSHO-CON Billboard Social Media Scavenger Hunt Rolls On!


EAST ORANGE, NJ – The East Orange Public Library (EOPL) is pleased to announce a billboard social media scavenger hunt to promote its fan-favorite TOSHO-CON comic/anime convention on Saturday, June 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

With the continued expansion and fervor among our patrons for TOSHO-CON, the EOPL furthers its invitation of comic and anime fans from all over to attend its convention. The library kicked off the event on Friday, May 19 via a Facebook Live viewing of the first billboard located at the intersection of South Harrison Street and Freeway Drive West in the city of East Orange. Each week leading up to TOSHO-CON, the EOPL will announce a new location of its remaining billboards via the TOSHO-CON Facebook page. The announcements will culminate in a final location reveal on Saturday, June 10, exactly one week before the convention.

To participate in the hunt, individuals must follow the EOPL and TOSHO-CON Facebook pages as well as the EOPL’s Instagram page throughout the scavenger hunt. Upon visiting a TOSHO-CON billboard location, participants must submit a clear and visible image of the billboard, the street name it appears on, and the correct location hint to the EOPL Instagram page using the “#TOSHOCONEOPL” hashtag. The first five participants to post that week’s billboard on our Instagram page will be noted throughout the hunt. The winner of the hunt will be recognized as the individual who found and posted the most if not all the billboards on the EOPL Instagram page. The grand prize winner of the scavenger hunt will be announced during TOSHO-CON and receive a comic/manga-themed bundle filled with books, candies, and more items reflecting various comic/anime fandoms. Smaller prizes for runner-up participants will be available. The EOPL encourages participants of all ages to enter and exercise safety in their participation. For a full list of rules please visit EOPL’s TOSHO-CON Facebook page.

A gateway to knowledge, the East Orange Public Library helps people of all ages meet their informational, educational, and recreational needs through professionally selected print and non-print resources.  For further information about this and other programs, please visit the Web at
