New book!

A new book on the shelf tonight:

Tales before Tolkien: The roots of modern fantasy edited by Douglas A. Anderson

Also, an announcement. I've ordered our first Anime film from Operation Anime, Fruits Basket. We'll hopefully be showing it on Tuesday, Feburary 21. February 7th, there will be no game/YA night, because of a scheduling conflict. (We could have just postponed it a week, but how many of you really would have shown up on Valentines day anyway?)

Anime update!

So far we have been accepted into two of the three Anime programs, the one for ADV films, and Funimation's Operation Anime. Take a look at their sites and see what we can look forward to in the coming months! Also, pay special attention to Operation Anime's screening selections. We'll need to pick what we want soon, so we can hopefully get it for next month!

Inagural Post

So the YA program's got a name (The YA Zoo: if you've ever been in the same room as us, you'd know why), and our very own blog. Check back frequently for program announcements, and feel free to comment with suggestions and/or opinions (everybody's got one).

Schedule of Events:

January 24-- 6:30-8:00: Game night in the library basement. You're free to come and play cards (MtG or just regular playing cards) or come and play DDR! You might want to bring a camera to this one, folks. :D

January 26-- 4:00-5:00: The Zoo board meeting. If you want to help us plan for future events, then this is the meeting for you. Right now, the Zoo board consists of anyone who wants to show up, so don't be left out!

** Starting next week, I'll be posting when we put new YA books onto the shelves (and maybe where to look for other graphic novels that aren't in the YA Graphic Novel section), so stay tuned!

** If you're interested in watching Anime at future game nights, let us know! Several Anime distributors will send us free Anime DVDs if we have more than 15 active members. Also, if you'd like to show something from your own Anime collection (no bootlegs or fansubs please), send us a list of what you have. We must ask permission from the Anime distributors (sometimes by snail-mail) before we can show anything. Plus, some companies will send us free promotional stuff if we ask early, so get those lists in!
