Landa Teens : bye-bye ’16

Posted in Crafts, Library Programs, San Antonio Public Library with tags , , , , on January 6, 2017 by landalibraryteens

Landa Teens rocked out the last month of the year with Teen Nights  inspired by the Mayor’s Book Club – we took way too many pics and listened to records brought from home (yep, actual LP records. Queen Forevah!),  Playdough part 2 – we helped make playdough for Landa’s Winterfest and  of course had a batch for ourselves, crafted for Dr. Wholiday with Cookies & Youtube Who-a-thons, Made displays in the Teen Area, and of course Cooking Club – pizza from scratch.  Whoa, ya’ll. Whoa. And so much more to come in 2017  🙂 . 

Encino Teen Time

Posted in Crafts, Library Programs with tags , on December 15, 2016 by encinolibraryteens

Welcome to Teen Time at Encino with your new host, Julia! I am so excited to be here with the coolest teens ever! We began the night with the goal of decorating the teen room for the holidays and celebrating the Mayor’s Book Club Fall book selection. Teens helped cut snowflakes made from old comic books and manga, munched on some candy, and we got to use our new Fugifilm Instax to take pictures. We also listened to some Christmas music and watched some Youtube videos. With the pictures on the wall and the snowflakes on the window the teen room is looking mighty cheery!

Craft Night at Thousand Oaks

Posted in Crafts on February 26, 2015 by thousandoakslibraryteens

Thousand Oaks Teens had a great time creating bendy people tonight, but even more fun was making a movie with them!

We made bendy people out of pipe cleaners, with beads and straws, then used them to create a short stop motion movie on the iPad.

Join us on Wednesdays, from 5 to 7 pm.

So. Much. Fun.
