How to Start a Teen Anime Club (When You Know Nothing About Anime)

I recently presented at the West Virginia Library Association’s annual Spring Fling Conference. My session covered the basics of starting a teen anime club. A little over a year ago, my teens asked me to create one for them. I know nothing about anime, so I was intimidated. It turned out to be one of my most successful recurring programs! I figured there were other librarians out there in the same boat, so I would share what I learned.

Here are the slides from my session:

Baby’s First Conference Presentation

pybffTomorrow is my first conference presentation. Yikes! I’m excited and nervous. I’ll be presenting at the West Virginia Library Association’s Annual Spring Fling. My session is titled, “Put Your Best Facebook Forward” (my coworkers came up with the title). It’s about – you guessed it – Facebook. Specifically improving your library’s Facebook presence. Some of our smaller libraries are still very new to the social media platform, so I think it ┬áis a very important topic. So, please keep your fingers crossed for me! I’ve attached my presentation slides and handouts in PDF format below.
