  • Become a Pokémon Master at Your Local LibrarySan Jose Public Library Instagram: Nick Hedrick with duduo

    Do You Want to be the Very Best? For the last week or so Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm and I couldn’t be happier.  As someone who grew up during the 90’s when Pokémon was huge, I feel a prick of nostalgia every time I see someone out hunting for Pokémon.  It takes me back to days when I would run home from school and turn on the T.V to watch the anime or I would head outside to trade cards with my friends. I devoured the manga and constantly looked for new ways to share my love of Pokémon. Everyone wanted to become a Pokémon master back then and thanks to Pokémon Go and your local library, now you really can catch ‘em all!
