Anime Night!

Anime night was a total sucess! A huge thank you to those who recruited friends to come, or put up posters for us. A good time was had by all, but it isn't quite over yet. Make sure to fill out the February survey over at ADV films. The survey can be found here. Your group is, of course, "YA Zoo".

See you all at the planning meeting, Thursday at four!


Don't forget, tonight from 6-8 is Anime Night! We'll see you in the basement. (Bring a friend!)

New books for Tuesday:

Meg Cabot's Princess in Training

Aimee Cooper's Coloring Outside the Lines: A Punk Rock Memoir

Kimberly Fusco's Tending to Grace

Also, don't forget that next Tuesday is Anime Night! Some of you have requested a calendar, and while I can't put one up here, you can click on the library's calendar of events (in the top right hand corner of the webpage) and see when Game Nights and Anime Nights are scheduled to take place. See you on the 28th!

Also also: If anybody has questions or suggestions that they don't want to post here on the blog, my email is posted under the Zookeeper profile. Don't be afraid to tell us what you think!

Okay guys, Funimation is your new best friend. No really. The packet we received today with the Fruits Basket vol. 1 DVD is stuffed with all sorts of cool things: postcards, posters, and a couple of sampler DVDs. We'll see you all next Tuesday! (Or this afternoon, if you're on the Zoo Board.)

Teen Night Schedule

The Teen night schedule has been tweaked a little, in order to avoid any more conflicts with other groups. Starting this month (except for Feb. 14), we will be having Game Night on the second Tuesday of every month (March 14, April 11, May 9) and Anime Night on the fourth Tuesday of every month (February 28, March 28, April 25, May 23). Also, we've moved the time back to 6:00-8:00 since we'll probably be needing that extra half hour when we start watching anime.
