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 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. For the most up to date anime schedule, check the monthly
calendar or contact Melissa @
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. Melissa 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, Melissa 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. Melissa will then reveal the results at the next club meeting.
Does the club do anything other
than watch anime?
Not at this time. 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.
