Hey Nancy!
Come on over to GNLIB-L,

where Kat and a whole bunch of librarians talk anime,
graphic novels, and manga constantly! Most of the
librarians buy, watch and read the same things for their
personal collections that they buy for the libraries. You
can find age appropriate suggestions, critical reviews,
etc. The list sometimes veers off into geek talk, but be
patient with us! The conversation eventually gets back
around to anime and manga.

This list is hosted by Topica, but the above address gives
subscription info.
