East makes the scene!

Here is our new flier for Tosho-con, featuring the 2009 Mascots, for our East vs. West theme. Panals will have a lot to talk about, and there will be a new category for the costume contest for you American Graphic Novel fans. Of course, there will be a lot of your old favorite, and many new surprises to look forward to. Viewers choice will also feature more than anime.
This event is free, as always. Enjoy free contests, events, movies, debates, guest speakers, demonstrations and more. Pictures from previous events can be found in the teen room. You can also view the DVD scrapbook in the movie room.

Tosho-con would like you to meet...

West! As our mascot for the American Graphic Novel Superhero, we think our teen artist did an amazing job. Make sure to keep an eye out for East. He'll be making an appearance soon! It's not too late to be a part of the fun behind the scenes. We still have applications for volunteers. If you are available from 5 - 7pm every 3rd Tuesday of the month, we have 3 meetings left until the convention.

It's almost that time!

We're getting closer to prom night, and I wanted to give everyone a few hints of the events to come. Make sure you're ready for some trivia, the first 3 people with all the right answers will win prizes. We also have look-alike contests for Edward, Bella, Jacob and Alice. Make sure you sign up at the door if you wish to take part. You will be judged by the rest of the teens, so keep in mind, they will be judging you based on what they think those characters should look like, not necessarily the characters being portrayed in the movie. There will also be door prizes, music, dancing and food that should keep any vampire or werewolf from eying our guests. This event is open to teens, December 12th, from 5:30pm until 9:30pm. Costume, prom dress, or casual attire are all fine.

Make sure to join us for the 3rd in our Books with Bite series of book talks as we discuss Stephenie Meyer's "Eclipse" on November 5th from 4-5 pm. Our teen book talks take place in the teen movie room, so grab a bean bag chair, sit back and continue our "team Edward, team Jacob" debate. Then, only one book remains before our Breaking Dawn Prom. On December 12th, make sure you're here before the library closes it's doors. Once they're locked, the night begins, with costume contests, trivia, door prizes and Meyer's own playlist.

Tosho-con 2009 gearing up!

We're getting ready again for another great convention, and we can't do it without you. If you want to be part of our anime convention this year, make sure you fill out one of our volunteer applications in the teen room. We meet the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 5-7 pm. The theme this year will be East vs West. Come as your favorite Anime hero, or Comic Villain! Guest Speakers, Panels, Contests, Vendors, Demonstrations and more. This is your chance to be part of it all.

Metamorphosis Ball

When it came to the Metamorphosis Ball, our Largo Library teens had no shortage of imagination. From make-up, to nail polish, and masks to all things glowing, they lit up the room. They danced for hours, and even convinced me to join in, which is no small feat. Though we were all exhausted when the lights came on, many of our teens stayed to help turn our bash back into a library. If you missed the ball, it's not too late to join us for the rest of our summer reading programs! Sign up online, or come in to the teen room for more details!

Book Talk With a Bite

Starting in September, we'll be working our way through the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer as our choice for the new book club program in the teen room. Every month we'll read the next book in her series. Check back for more details, since you know I like to end a program with a bang!

Get Published!

Mosaic is taking submissions until July 31st, so if you are sitting on the next great short story, drawing, essay, poem or even photo and you want to enter it for a chance to see it published, come in and grab a registration form.
I know I've seen a lot of talent from you, and I can't wait to see what you submit. If what you've shown us in the past is any indication, it's going to be an amazing issue.

Metamorphosis @ your Library

Registration for the Summer Reading Program has begun. If you haven't come in for your free packet, there is still time. Next week we kick off with our first Anime program on Tuesday. There will be prizes, free food, and of course, Anime. It will also get you one step closer to your ticket to the rave-esque Metamorphosis Ball.

On Thursday, we have our Eeeek Bugs! Program. Food fear factor, drawing contest, trivia, prizes, and of course we'll get Julie to eat something nauseating. Hey, I have to have my fun too, right?
