Shonen Jump online manga magazine is now available at the library!
Thanks to Adam Finke, Grade 8 student at the Christa McAuliffe Charter School, for the following description of Shonen Jump:
Shonen Jump was a weekly manga magazine, but now it’s online only. It has new chapters from all the new manga like One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bleach, and Naruto. It is very popular here because it is the main source for new manga. Many people in many age groups enjoy it. It is great for manga fans, especially for ones who want more suspense. It’s awesome and definitely worth it.”
Ask Marcy Maiorana at the main library or Kim Jung at the McAuliffe branch for in-library access to Shonen Jump online.

Video games are here!
We have recently added several games for the Wii and xBox 360 to the Young Adult collection! Games may be borrowed for free for one week. We would like to expand our gaming collection, so please consider donating games you don’t play any more to the library.
