Dear Library Friends,

Do you know the Studio Ghibri?

It is a well known Japanese animation film studio, where five of its films received Academy Award nominations in the United States. Their well known film Spirited Away won a Golden Bear in 2002 and an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2003. 

Totoro, a character from My Neighbour Totoro is the studio's mascot.

You can find more than 30 of their significant works in the secondary library. We recently purchased some of Ghibri graphic novels from the book fair as well. 

 come and enjoy the graphic novels and movies!!!
