Teen Anime Club generally meets on the last Wednesday of the month from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM, in the library’s auditorium. Each month interested teens make a craft or activity inspired by anime or Japanese culture, discuss their favorite anime and manga, and watch a few episodes of a voted-upon anime.
