Otakus is Russell Library’s teen group for fans of Anime, Manga and all things Japanese. Meeting twice a month, we view anime film shorts, discuss our favorite manga series and explore the culture that has produced such art forms. Food, music, costumes, arts and other expressions of Japan are all parts of Otakus. This is a drop-in program, so come and enjoy the fun. For more information please visit the Children’s Information Desk or call the Children’s Department at (860) 344-8479. Otakus will meet at 7:00 pm in the Hubbard Room on January 8 and at 7:00pm in Meeting Room 3 on January 22. Russell Library is located at 123 Broad Street, Middletown. This program is for children ages 11 and older.
