Giving Back

Giving Back to the Community

As gateways to knowledge and culture, libraries play a fundamental role in society. The resources and services they offer create opportunities for learning, support literacy and education, and help shape the new ideas and perspectives that are central to a creative and innovative society. For many, a public library is their only access to manga and information on Asian culture.

As Otaku Scents has grown these past few years, we figure it's about time we give back to our local communities, and figure this is the best way to do so! Every few months we will donate a sum to a local public library or a sponsored library (for non-Dallas/Fort Worth public libraries) to be used towards purchasing new manga, and for programs such as an Anime Club hosted at a local library.

If you would like to donate as well, we have now activated a "donation" section in our checkout, where you can donate a percentage of your total order (or a custom amount). 100% of the donations collected will go to local libraries to be used for purchase of related literary items and supporting programs.

On behalf of local public libraries, we thank you for making a difference!

Libraries we have donated to:

Denton Public Library (Denton, TX)
