The LaRue County Public Library has opened its doors to teens looking to have some fun.
Teen Librarian Katie Wheatley has implemented two groups, Teen Monday, also known as Monday Funday, and the Anime Club.
Teen Monday began in January and is filled with a variety of indoor and outdoor activities such as cornhole, crafts, games and relays. The group focuses on team activities and meets 3:30-4:30 p.m. every Monday at the library. Any teen interested in participating is welcome.
The Anime Club began meeting in March and has attracted approximately 22 teens, according to Wheatley. The club is geared towards teens interested in learning more about anime. Anime is a Japanese cartoon that has caught the attention of many different cultures. Japanese art, culture, language and dress are focal points of the program. The anime club offers teens the chance to watch anime videos and read mangas.
According to Wheatley, the library has purchased about 35 mangas for the teens to use in conjunction with the program. The club meets 3:30-4:45 every Thursday at the Library. Any teen interested in learning more about anime is invited to attend.
