Teen Anime Club: Wolf Children
Wednesday, March 5th
3:00 – 5:00 PM
This month we'll be watching Wolf Children (PG).
From the director of Summer Wars. Hana was a student before she was a mother. She was bright and pretty, and her future held endless possibilities. Then she met a man, who turned out to be a wolf, and together they built a family. Hana loved her mate fiercely, but fate took him from her, leaving her alone with two unusual kids she didn’t know how to raise. Frightened of being discovered, Hana and her wolf children fled to the countryside to build a new life. Raising her little wild things was an adventure. It left Hana bruised, scratched, exhausted, and joyously overwhelmed as her pups grew stronger and wandered further every day. This is a mother's journey. Teach your children to chase their dreams - and smile through the tears as they disappear into the world in search of who they will become. Hana wasn't always a mother, but it was always what she was meant to be.
Anime Club meets almost every month to watch shows, read manga, and have a good time. If you're an anime fan or just getting started on your first series, check it out! This event is aimed at teens ages 13+.

Make'n'Take: Monty Python & Perler Beads
Wednesday, March 26th
3:00 to 5:00 PM
Hang out and watch a comedy classic, Monty Python and the Holy Grail (PG). King Arthur and his knights are on a quest to find the Holy Grail. Marvel at Sir Galahad the pure, Sir Lancelot the brave, the knowledgeable Sir Bedevere, and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir Lancelot. Tremble in fear at witches, the Knights Who Say Ni, Tim the Enchanter, and the most dangerous rabbit ever to grace film. If you’ve never seen Monty Python, now’s your chance to rectify the situation!
While we watch, we’ll have crafting materials out, so you can craft the afternoon away! Make an awesome perler bead creation or be styling and profiling with your own custom-made pin-back buttons.
