Too cold for anything but MOVIES!

Hey, hope you're getting through this cold winter okay! We are buying plenty of exciting new movies, so remember to get your library on! Those of you following popular series will be excited by this month's release of Downton Abbey Season 4, and Game of Thrones Season 3!

April 1st Amnesty Day is approaching fast--as long as your items have been returned, we will erase all Seymour library fines for anyone who comes in! Time to get those killer movie late fees wiped out.

In anime, be ready for the fast-approaching Anime Afternoon, on April 5th this year! It's earlier than usual due to schedule conflicts. We are adding new titles this year, as always--here in Seymour, we have Natsume's Book of Friends awaiting cataloging, and Penguindrum on order. In the library system, since the last event, libraries have added Nura Rise of the Yokai Clan and Hakuoki.

Anime Halloween was great!

Just want to say that our annual Anime Halloween was fantastic, with over 43 people attending, lots of great shows chosen, and tons of fun! Special thanks to those of you who brought treats and helped with the cleanup, and a big thanks to everybody who came, for helping to make our anime events ever more awesome!

Anime n Stuff!

This Friday is our second outdoor movie night, hope you can make it! The Friday Night Movie lineup is almost set through October. Included is a screening of the documentary, Green Fire.

And of course, Anime Halloween is coming up fast! Preparations and permission requests are under way.

We have added lots of exciting anime titles to the shelves this year:

Soul Eater: The hugely popular shonen anime about kids learning to fight at a school run by the Grim Reaper himself.

Steins: Gate: A time-traveling tale of suspense and conspiracy.

Sound of the Sky: A sweet post-apocalyptic tale of a girl who joins the army to learn to play the bugle.

Clannad: The classic school life anime.

Persona 4: a video-game based title about kids traveling into a strange techy world to battle their alternate selves

Canaan: An action thriller about the results of a secret medical experiment gone wrong.

My Bride is a Mermaid: Slapstick comedy about a boy who is rescued by a mermaid, and must marry her, against the wishes of her mobster family.

Squid Girl: A cute comedy about a squid who comes ashore to take over the world and teach humanity to respect the ocean.

Genshiken: We have replaced our Season 1 with a box set containing both seasons and the OVAs.

Black Cat: A classic donated by a patron. I haven't watched it, so I can't talk about it. :D

Anime fans will also want to have a look at Appleton's exciting new acquisitions, Angel Beats and Un-Go.

Summer is coming!

Summer is coming! That means summer hours, the summer reading program, and the ever popular OUTDOOR movie nights! (They have not yet been scheduled, we will let you know when. I can tell you, though, that we will be showing the new Oz movie and an older favorite about boys who dig holes...) Summer also means there are less new releases to choose from for the Friday Movie nights, so feel free to make suggestions. This July we are pleased to present our very first SING-ALONG movie night on July 12th! Bring your Munchkins and beware of falling houses! Woohoo!

Movie lineup change

Just a heads-up to let you know we have shuffled some of our movie showing dates around! With so many spooky, Halloweeny movies being released on video, we wanted to break them up a little so they weren't all being shown one after the other.

December Splurge!

Sorry there have been no Friday Night movies posted! For the last few months we've had a budget freeze, and so I was unsure what movies we would have available, and when. But the freeze is over, and we're having fun spending the rest of our year's budget! When you come in, you may find plenty of new movies and books available! Friday Night movies will start up again after the holidays, on January 11th. See you then!

Exciting lineup!

We have quite a few exciting movies lined up for Friday nights until the end of the year! Next time you are in the library, check the Coming Up poster near the DVD section. Included is our annual Anime Halloween event, with the usual delicious curry, entertaining anime, and all-around fun. Saturday, October 27!
