Calling all teens (ages 12-18) that love anime! For this month’s virtual gathering on Zoom, we’ll be focusing on back-to-school episodes! Whether you are a seasoned fan or thinking about diving into the world of Japanese anime, this virtual gathering is just for you! For this month we’ve planned 1) a “take and make kit” that you can pick up at your local branch, and later in the month 2) an outdoor gathering meet others in the club.
Sign Up Today: https://forms.gle/vgRX7FUgRcb4Hk387
In your “take and make kit” you’ll find snacks and all the supplies you’ll need to complete a planned craft. Remember, you must be registered to receive a kit. When you sign up, you will be able to select your branch pickup location or even request it through our BookDash delivery service for homebound patrons (https://www.mympls.org/bookdash-delivery-service-becomes-a-permanent-library-service/)
Later in the month, all registrants will be invited to join us in a Zoom meeting on August 17th at 4:30pm to meet other enthusiasts. We’ll be discussing that month’s theme.
