Teen Anime Club: Kiki’s Delivery Service

Thursday, October 17, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Oglethorpe County Library is showing Miyazaki’s Kiki’s Delivery Service for its anime club. All teens ages 13 to 18 are invited to attend this free showing of the Disney version of this movie.

Kiki is a young witch-in-training, and has reached the age of 13. According to tradition, all witches of that age must leave home for one year, so that they can learn how to live on their own. Along with her talking cat, Gigi, Kiki flies away to live in a seaside town. After starting her own delivery service (using her broom as the delivery vehicle), Kiki must learn how to deal with her new life, especially after she loses the power to fly.

The film is based on the Japanese children’s novel by the same name, and rated G. Free popcorn will be served!

Young Adult Skills Class: PREZI

Wednesday October 9th at 4:30 pm 

Teens, do you have a school project or presentation coming up? Are you tired of traditional PowerPoint presentations? Would you like to WOW your teachers and classmates with something different? Come to this free class to learn how to make amazing multimedia presentations using Prezi, a web-based alternative to PowerPoint! This cool alternative presentation tool steps away from the concept of slides and into an unlimited canvas format that allows you to easily map out your presentation as ideas come to you. This tool is also excellent for group projects and collaborations, allowing multiple people to work on a presentation simultaneously!

This web-based tool requires an email address to register for a free Prezi account. Teens are encouraged to bring their own laptop computer with them in order to follow along during the class, though this is not a requirement. Those without a laptop are still welcome to attend and listen. How-To instructions in the form of a handout will be provided for everyone who attends!
