The League of Teen Advisors

Wednesday, February 25th, 3:30 - 5:30 pm

Make a difference at your library! Join our Teen Advisory Group. Your opinion matters - if you’d like to plan and assist with teen programs, then this is the group for you! Help shape services for teens at the library with this great volunteer opportunity.  

This month we'll be talking about decorating the Library's Teen Zone and about what programs/activities we want to hold during Free Comic Book Day (May 2nd).

Feel free to email the library with questions about how the League of Teen Advisors can count towards school community service requirements.

Anime Club

Saturday, February 28th, 1:00 - 4:30 pm

If you’re into anime and manga - or would like to learn more about them - join us for Anime Club! We’ll meet to watch and discuss anime and share what we’re reading. Snacks will be provided.

This program is for ages 13 - 25, no registration required.

We’ll be watching two anime during this program, Attack on Titan (TV-MA) and Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories (not rated). In Attack on Titan, the last remnants of humanity have retreated behind the towering walls of a fortified city in order to escape the massive, man-eating Titans. Only the heroic members of the Scouting Legion dare to stray outside the safety of the walls. Yamishibai is a spine-chilling anime that tells a variety of stories based off of urban legends and ghost stories set throughout the history of Japan.
