Teen Program

Anime Club – Psycho Pass (TV-14) September 22nd @ 5 PM [14+]

 

“In the future, thinking about a crime makes you guilty, and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the line. The equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a weapon that can tell when citizens are about to turn criminal.”-Crunchyroll.com

With Banned Books Week starting the next day, the Parker Williams Anime Club is going to explore the world of Psycho Pass, a place where your mental state is determined by the color of you hue.

If you have criminal intent, justice is enforced swiftly. Join us at the Parker Williams Branch on September 22nd at 5 PM to find out “What’s your color?”
