The Puyallup Public Library offers free programs for teens and young adults (ages 13+ or grades 7+) throughout the school year. Teens can drop in for Anime Club, gaming days, crafting, and the League of Teen Advisors volunteer group. All teen programs are offered through funding from The Friends of the Puyallup Public Library.
If you would like to be added to our monthly electronic newsletter about teen programs, please email Young Adult Librarian Bonnie Svitavsky to be added to our mailing list.
Anime Club: Your Name
Wednesday, February 7th, 3:00 - 5:00 pm
Library Meeting Rooms
This month we'll be watching Your Name (rated PG).The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki's body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. But try as they might to meet in person, something more daunting than distance prevents them.
No registration required to attend. If you have requests for future anime club screenings, email us your suggested titles.
