FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
What is anime?
Anime is short for Japanese
animation! We don’t refer to it as “cartoons”, because anime is more than
that – it’s a culture. And it’s definitely not “just for kids”.
When does the WCPL Anime Club meet?
The Anime Club meets every Tuesday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. For the most up to date anime schedule, check the monthly
calendar or contact Jamie @
Who can attend the WCPL Anime Club?
We take anyone thirteen and up. We do not accept
members under the age of thirteen.
What is the anime rated?
The anime we view is rated TV14 and TVPG. If an anime is rated TVMA,
we will watch this program last, so people can leave if they wish.
Who picks the shows the club watches?
The club as a whole. Voting works as follows. Jamie will
announce ahead of time that a voting day will be coming up and ask for
screening suggestions. She'll then attempt to get the first episodes
of shows for screening. On voting day, the club will watch the pilot
(i.e. first episode) of several different series. At the end of
club, Jamie will hand out voting ballots, which members will fill out in
secret and hand back to her before they leave. Any member not present
on voting day still has the opportunity to vote thru e-mail up to that
Friday. Jamie will then reveal the results at the next club meeting.
Does the club do anything other
than watch anime?
New to the Anime Club - Learn to draw anime! If
you have a favorite character you've always wanted to draw, here is the
place to learn how. Club members looking to do more should look into the
library's other teen programs or ask about our Adopt-a-Shelf program for
teens needing community service hours.
