Anime Afternoon

Calling all teen anime enthusiasts! Join us from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month to watch a couple episodes of an anime we choose (and eat snacks). Cosplay is always welcome!

An anime character with purple hair and eyes, her hands raised in excitement

Geared toward middle school and high school students. We'll pick an anime to watch by consensus, so you're not stuck watching something you don't like - and if we don't get to your suggestion, we'll save it for next month.

Blue text on a light background reads "Find your favorites on our digital library!" To the right of the text is a young masculine-presenting white person wearing glasses and looking intently at a mobile device, presumably reading an ebook. Toward the bottom of the image is the logo for Wisconsin's digital library, an open blue book with different-colored blocks coming off the front cover.
