The Anime Club has donated 261 books and one DVD to the College at Florham library.  Most people will recognize Manga (mahn-gah) as Japanese comic books, although many scholars and commentators use the term “graphic novel” instead of “comic” in order to stress the significance of this narrative form.

Items from the collection may be checked out for a period of 7 days.  To access the collection, please inquire at the Circulation desk during regular library hours.
