The library has a little known collection, and it’s one that many readers find themselves engrossed in. That collection is manga. Manga is similar to comic books in nature and contains a lot of different subgenres as well. 

The library has a collection of manga, one that librarian Samantha Warren has to manage frequently.

It is right as soon as you walk in the door, and there’s a reason for that,” Warren said. “Because it is my most highly circulated collection. It is the most checked out genre in the entire library.” 

Senior Sapphire Blakemore is a manga reader.

“Whenever I was in my freshman and sophomore year, I read a bunch of manga all the time and they seem to have a really wide variety,” Blakemore said. “I’m really happy about that.”

While the collection has room to grow, there’s still a lot of choices, as freshman Jonathan Spear points out. “There’s a lot of interesting stuff in there,” Spear said.  “I was thinking of starting to read Full Metal Alchemist. I think they have a pretty good collection of it.” Jonathan is also hopeful for new readers and says, “If you like comic books, and you like anime, you should check this out.”
