Teen coffee house, anime club continue

Students entering sixth grade or higher will have a variety of library programs to enjoy this fall.

The popular coffee house gathering for teens, enjoyed by many this summer on Monday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Bealeton Library, is continuing.

Teens engage in a variety of activities during the coffee house gatherings, including, discussions, poetry readings, watching movies, and doing book reviews. The program will switch to 4 p.m. beginning Sept. 15. E-mail Anna Ellis or call (540) 439-9728 for more information.

Another popular teen program, which began as a single event then featured as a part of the summer reading program, is the anime club. Teens can now attend regular anime club meetings beginning 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2, at the Warrenton Library. Subsequent meetings will be held the first and third Tuesdays of the month.

Bring friends and meet other anime fans. Activities will vary each week but will include watching DVDs and playing games.

Registration is not required for the programs and there are no fees.
