Yesterday boys from across the school were invited to visit the manga-themed pop-up store which was held in the Middle School Library at lunchtime.
Books were provided by Zombster, the manga book specialist store in Oxley, and covered all age ranges and a variety of suitable story lines. Alistair from the store was on hand to answer any questions and offer advice about the titles.
Boys were able to vote on the titles they wished to see added to our collection. Library staff are now working hard to process the books as quickly as possible!
This event has kicked off the start of our manga focus for Term 3 across all three libraries. Upcoming events include craft and food-making sessions, screenings of videos, an author visit and manga drawing tips and techniques.
Already boys are showing a much greater interest in this genre and its popularity will continue to grow as the term unfolds.
