This Wednesday will be our Explosion Box craft at Sellers Library from 3:30 to 5:00! I've started an example box, which you can see below. The outside is blackout poetry, the inside is cut up manga!

Next week on Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:00 will be our Anime Club meeting! We'll have snacks and vote on an anime to watch and play some anime bingo!
