Looking for ways to interact with anime and manga fans? Join us for Manga Monday on October 9 from 3 - 5:30 p.m. in the Teen Room at Main Library. You'll make new friends, talk about your favorite characters, and check out the Library's massive manga and graphic novels collection. It's part of a "Week of Wasabicon," with events happening all over downtown Jacksonville. The Library will also be an exhibitor at WasabiCon! And we're bringing tons of manga for people to read and check out at the convention.

Halloween Happenings and Books for Kids and Teens at the Library

Halloween Books for Kids

Halloween is almost here! Before you know it, the ghosts and goblins will be showing up at your doorstep, with trick-or-treat bags in hand! It can be a fun time for horror fans and pranksters alike. And we can't forget about all of the yummy fall treats like pumpkin pie, caramel apples and free, full-sized candy bars from your favorite neighbor down the street! But with all of the masks and monster makeup, strange noises and zombie movies... It can also be a scary time for kids. While it can definitely be fun to be scared... Sometimes you want a not-so-scary alternative! And the Library has plenty of both! 

Dungeon Master Summer Academy for Teens

Wanted: Teen Adventurers (ages 12-17) Dungeon Master Summer Academy

Ever wanted to run your own Dungeon & Dragons adventures? Learn how to write, craft, and play in a world of your own making! Join us in the Teen Room at the Main Library on select Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays June 5 - July 12 for drop-in crafts, one-shot writing clinics, session zero prep and more at a DM Summer Academy just for teens (ages 12-18). If you're still new to D&D or just have no interest in running games, you can still stop by on Drop-In D&D days to play and give our DMs-in-training some practice!
