Last week the library hosted a manga workshop, featuring manga artist Misako Rocks!
More than 120 students attended this enjoyable event where Misako demonstrated how to achieve the perfect level of kawaii, or cuteness, in original character drawings. Miksako was warm and funny and students were clearly enjoying themselves.
Katy, a library monitor described the event as follows:
For students eager to deepen their practice, the recently funded Donorschoose.org grant, supported by many BTHS parents, (THANK YOU!) allowed us to purchase markers and paper perfect for manga illustration. We look forward to future author/illustrator visits and to seeing students' beautiful creations.
Today in the library we are celebrating Earth Day with plant cuttings that have grown roots and are ready to be transplanted and adopted. Students have decorated recycled containers and are transferring plants, and adding rocks, soil and compost. We have a lot of books and pamphlets available about offerings by the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, as well as information about gardening and recycling. Finally, we have a table of free items, in our attempt to (reduce) reuse (recycle) and avoid more garbage in the landfills.
We hope you'll stop by to adopt a plant or enjoy our resources. Happy Earth Day and...a warm welcome back to so many lovely Brooklyn Tech Alumni! #homecoming :)
Ms. Ferguson is one of the librarians at the Brooklyn Tech Library. We look forward to seeing you in the library!
