Gray, Daniel “Anime Club 101” Media- Video,
Multicultural- Other,
Visual Arts- Cartooning
Watching anime is no longer exclusive to college dorm rooms or for home use. Anime is moving into the public library for young adults in the form of programs presented to these young patrons who wish to interact with fellow fans. Currently, the Upper Hudson Library System has encouraged the development of teen anime clubs in many of its 29 branch public libraries. Pioneering public libraries have embraced the idea of non-traditional library events such as mini-conventions. Among these in 2015, the main branch of the Schenectady Public Library held such an event at no cost to patrons. Included were various panels on comic books, cosplay and of course anime. Many public facilities are following this Japanese popular culture trend by helping teens form their own fan clubs at schools, public libraries, churches and colleges. This program serves as an introduction to anyone who wants to start such an anime club. Major topics presented includes: forming a club hierarchy, club constitution, use of library technology, public presentations rights, copyrights issues, content issues, planning for club field trips, and of course parental supervision and liability.

Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Butterfly Release Nature- Animals,
Nature- Gardening,
Visual Arts- Crafts
Everyone loves butterflies, especially up close and personal. They are a medium that unlocks the heart of angry teenagers, and are able to coax the shyest of children out of their shells. When there is a butterfly release in town, people literally drop everything to attend. The day of the event students learn how to identify host and nectar plants, what Monarch eggs, larvae, and pupal forms look like; how to tell a male from female and why the males have pheromone pouches on their wings. There is much discussion on native butterflies in NY and identifying specimens patrons have observed. Releases attract the attention of the local media, and are great publicity. I have Monarch, Painted Lady, Mourning Cloak, Eastern Black Swallowtail, and Red Admiral Butterflies this season. Wild-caught displays (not always available) might include Eastern Tailed Blue, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Clouded Sulphur, Cabbage White, White Admiral, and Baltimore Checkerspot. At the end of the program the butterflies are released either individually or as a group. This program is suitable for the 2017 Summer Reading Program.
