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.

Anime Afternoon

a cute anime girl looks excited to be here

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! 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.

Large letters spell out FULL STEAM AHEAD

Join us at 4:30 PM on the third Tuesday of each month for an activity that explores the intersections between science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Each month we'll have a different art or craft project. We provide the supplies, you provide the imagination! Don't be intimidated - we're basically hanging out and making stuff. Can't make it? Check out the Teen Space after the event for instructions on how to do this month's project for yourself! Geared for those in grades 6-12 - younger folks will probably struggle with the difficulty level. Registration is generally not necessary unless supplies are very limited.
