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.
