Hey everyone! I thought it was about time we had a little update about what the YA department is up to. For those of you YAK and Chimera attendees, you may know about the DOH grant and that Laura and I had reapplied for it. Well good news, we got the grant! This means that we will be able to continue having YAK and Chimera every week, we will have more money for snacks and crafts and Laura and I have just as many hours to spend working on improving the teen section and teen programing!
In other good news, Laura and I were also able to place several orders. Laura ordered quite a stack of new fiction (including several copies of Mocking Jay, the new Hunger Games Novel) and I ordered a good chunk of new manga and some video games. The library will now have Wii games!
Also updated was the fall schedule of events and for those of you on the border of teen (age 18) there is a new anime club! Please feel free to join us Saturdays from 6-8pm if you are 18 or over. The age limit is only in place because this is an anime club for adults, and has nothing to do with the programing schedule.
Hope to see you soon!
As those of you who read manga may know, there is a little box in the manga section that allows readers to request certain volumes and series that they do not see on the shelf. Readers comments are very important to me when it comes to buying manga, and I make an effort to buy what the readers request. However, the YA department has a very limited budget when it comes to manga, so progress is slow. I want you all to know how much I appreciate you're comments and requests, so KEEP'EM COMM'IN!
The fallowing is the list of mangas that have been requested. I will do my best to order at least some of each over the next year!

Good news everyone. Today was our first official meeting of the Teen Advisory Group. Things went really well in my optimistic opinion! We extended the event time, so now teen events start at 3:30 and go until 5pm. We also planed the meetings for the next two months, so check the events page for more details!
On a different note, Laura and I placed a rather large order for the teen section so expect loads of manga and fiction in the coming months!
Hope to see you next week teen!
