OMG! It's been a long time since...

I can't believe how long it's been since my last post! My intention is to blog as often as I can get to a computer. Well, this is one of my New Year's resolutions.



Interesting things are happening at the Hart Library. We started a Teen Advisory Group in October. I've gotten some good suggestions from the attendees. How about game board nights and Guitar Hero contests? They're in the works. Who would be interested in an anime club? Tell me!



The 2008 Summer Reading Club theme is "Scare Up a Good Read @ Your Library." Bruno the Gorilla (remember him from last summer?) is itching to help out. I'm busy trying to come up with ideas. If you have any, please share!



As for "printed media," I'd like to focus your attention on graphic novels and manga. We have a good selection of both. Have you seen ads for the movie version of Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi? We have the graphic novel and its sequel. We also have 300 by Frank Miller and a version of Beowulf by Gareth Hinds. Those great illustrators Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore and Frank Miller rule! we're continuing the run of Naruto, Hellsing, Fruits Basket, and Teen Titans. We've added new series like R. O. D. by Hideyuki Kurata, Scrapped Princess by Ichiro Sakaki, and Miki Falls by Mark Crilley. The library also has plenty of books on how to draw manga, and cartooning.
