Fall Reading Challenge
KIDS & TEENS
Fall Reading Challenge
The Cape May County Library is challenging the school-aged children of the county to read for FUN this fall. Read anything you want, enter the minutes you spend reading into your online reading log, and earn one point for every 5 minutes spent reading! You can also get points for attending the library's virtual events, and for writing reviews of the books you read! The points you earn will be entered into the prize drawing at the end of the challenge.

This is a no-stress, no-pressure challenge that you can do at your own pace. There will be a drawing after October 31 for 2 backpacks filled with school supplies and library swag. If you've participated in our Summer Reading Club, you can use the same username and password.

Please contact the Children's Department with any questions by calling (609) 463-6350 x300 or emailing [email protected]

The Teen Anime Club is aimed at spreading the fun of anime and gaining a better appreciation and understanding of the content. In the Anime club you’ll get to watch the best and sometimes even the worst that anime has to offer, joined by other fans you’ll laugh, cry, and cringe through movies and episodes of both new and classic anime. After which we’ll have an open discussion of what we watched. Together we’ll be able to view anime with a critical eye and differentiate between strong and weak animation, character development, and storytelling.

Kevin Barndt is a long standing anime fan. Creator and host of ‘The Otabros,’ a live weekly talk show on twitch.tv/theotabros where hosts discuss and analyze anime, manga, and the anime industry as a whole. With over a decade of interaction with the anime community and numerous convention attendances Kevin and the rest of The Otabros work to spread the enjoyment, appreciation, and better understanding of the anime medium.
