Tired of dropping off your teens at the pool or the mall? Sure, school is just around the corner, but before then, the Louisville Free Public Library is offering up Animecon 9 — the annual Japanese-style animation and Asian culture convention. Friday is geared toward 12-19-year-olds with anime screenings, workshops, costume contests and a samurai presentation by the Frazier History Museum. Saturday’s festivities are for 5-11-year-olds and feature games, contests and more. Animecon is part of the library’s Summer Reading Program. Go to lfpl.org to register. —Sara Havens
