Calling All Otaku! Clubs and Cons For Teens

Are you ready to get your fan on? We are only 9 days away from Oni-Con, one of Houston's oldest anime conventions. Cosplayers are working on last minute details. I'm getting my list ready so I know which volumes of manga and anime that I need to buy and which ones I already have at home. The countdown has begun!

But what if you can't attend anime conventions or need an anime fix between conventions? Check out your local library! Click on the blog post for a list of library anime clubs for teens.


Please note, these clubs part of the Young Adult program so they are geared toward teens. If you have any questions about the suitability of the club for younger library patrons, please contact the library directly.
