J.A.M.S. in June

Yesterday our anime club, J.A.M.S. met and enjoyed the whole first volume of xxxholic! I'm going to try and get permission to show volume 2 in July. We also had a little cosplay contest and I took a picture of the awesome results!

Flicks for Teens: The Other Boleyn Girl

Yesterday we showed The Other Boleyn Girl to a group of teens who knew a surprising amount about King Henry VIII and his life. I was impressed! The movie is based on a book of the same name by Philippa Gregory if you'd like to read it. We won't have another teen movie until August and we'll vote for what to show at the July TAG meeting. Our next event is our anime club, J.A.M.S. on Wednesday, June 25th @ 3pm. We're showing anime (probably xxxholic!) and having a cosplay contest, so I hope you can join us!

Photobook: Spartanburg 2008

So last year we tried a little experiment called Photobook where we gave 50 teens a camera each and asked them to take pictures of Spartanburg. It went so well we decided fo do it again this year! Find more info here.

Then yesterday we enjoyed ice cream in the heat while
discussing 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
at our June Read & Feed. The next teen event at HQ is The Other Boleyn Girl on Thursday, June 19th at 3pm. Hope to see you there!
