In this fun, pop culture laced, interactive webinar, youth librarians Pamela Jayne & Krista King-Oaks will delve into the misunderstood format of Manga to de-mystify the secrets behind the hottest growing collection of public libraries and bookstores across the country.

 

We will define common jargon related to the format, include tips for keeping up on the latest media releases and trends, find resources for collection development and reader’s advisory, and learn tricks for keeping your collection topical and age-appropriate.

 

Beyond the focus of collection development, we will include programming ideas that will reach out and engage the whole family. Also, we will provide easy to replicate community outreach and social marketing strategies to promote and extend the theme beyond the titles.
