Chibi Zone

The Chibi Zone presented by Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec: a unique and familial space to stimulate the creativity of little and the big ones!


Animated by a dynamic team from the Grande Bibliothèque and warm and enthusiastic Otakuthon volunteers, the Chibi Zone is a calm-friendly space that welcomes families during their stay at Otakuthon.

Several activities are offered to stimulate their creativity: origami making, colouring, and drawing, crafts, manga and children’s book reading, as well as fun and entertaining surprises!


The Chibi Zone also includes a space dedicated to breastfeeding, relaxation, and reading for families.

All children must be accompanied, at all times, by a responsible person during their visit in the Chibi Zone.
