Anime Training

Tomorrow I am heading to another library system to give a presentation on anime clubs. I'll be talking about the anime club I host at my library, how I choose anime, and activities we've done.

If any of you have run or participated in an anime club (library or elswhere) I'd love to hear about it! How did you run your club? How did you pick your anime? Did you have complaints about the anime chosen? What activities have you done?

I'll be working on my powerpoint today, so if you have any feedback for me you can comment below or send me an e-mail: greenbeanteenqueen at gmail dot com Thanks!

  3. Sadly I've never been in an anime club so I am of little help, but interaction is always a good thing in my book. Cosplay, behind the scenes, hmmm... I'm sure you know all this a lot better than me.

  4. I was in an anime club in college and it was a blast. The elected board selected the two anime that we watched for the year. Sometimes it was a hit and others I just didn't go to. We had karaoke, art and cosplay contests, as well as music videos contests but copy right is a bit iffy on that. Hope it helps.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
