We've just added a new magazine to our Teen Collection! Otaku USA is a bi-monthly magazine that "features comprehensive coverage of anime, manga, videogames, and Japanese Pop culture written from an American perspective". It also showcases 32-pages of chapters from hot upcoming manga releases in each issue!
We're down to the last few days! Submit your best short story, poem, drawing, or photograph to Jody (email@example.com) by Wednesday, November 30th for a chance to win one of four $25 gift cards!
Congratulations to the teens who participated in the Escape Room! They made it out in 52 minutes! Well done!
Join us on Tuesday, October 25th, at 6 p.m. for the Escape Room Challenge! After entering the room and going over the rules, the doors will be locked behind you. 60 minutes is on the clock! You'll need to search the room for clues and work together to solve puzzles that will lead to your escape. Are you up to the challenge?
Highschool and College students, do you need service hours for NHS or another school requirement? We often have a need for volunteers to help at one or more of our many Youth Services Department programs during the school year. If you are interested, fill out an application (both pages, please) and return it to the Youth Services Desk. Our volunteer coordinator will contact you with additional details. Pick up an application at the library or download it here: Volunteer Application
