June @ Encino

Posted in anime, Crafts, San Antonio Public Library with tags , , on July 9, 2017 by encinolibraryteens

Hi from Encino library world! We had such an awesome month staring things off with our Summer Reading Kickoff Party with ninja balloon assassin, green screen photos, tons of gaming and pizza! 

Mondays this month were all about the Anime in (duh) Anime Club! Plus awesome snacks like SnoCones and smoothies to get us pumped for more episodes of Mob Psycho 100, Durarara, Torikno, Blood Blockade Battlefront, and My Hero Academia

We took our new Teen Tuesday program to the heights of DIY with plant pot decoupage, perler bead creations, and teen-made delicious food featuring dirt pudding and lazy smores bars. Teens took their cooking skills to the next level during a visit from Chef Justin of the San Antonio Food Bank. They made yummy Spanish food including gazpacho, paella, and sangria. 

Finally (last but not least!) Wednesdays this month featured two epic teen gaming sessions and a *new program* we call Teen Screen where we watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (cosplay encouraged!). 

Join us next month as we continue to cook around the world, watch a couple of new blockbuster movies, get our creative juices going with more crafts, and play so many more video games like our favorite super smash bros! 🙂 

Landa Teens : May ’17

It’s the end of the semester and we have been doing All The Things : we started off May by doing our first Suggestion Box event : SLIME part II! It was super goopy goodness. We marbled with acrylics making marbled paper and mugs – perfect for gifting to our moms for Mothers Day – and had a reboot of Ziplock icecream with a Moana sing -a-long.

Our HelloGoodbye Bash (just your typical End of School Year – Landa Closing – Summer Starting Celebration) was pretty awesome, too. We made bots out of LEDs and clay, tried a round 2 of switch-plate decor, ate sooo much pizza and got prepped for summer reading. Oh yeah – we tested out Landa’s green screen too – it was epic.

Alright, that’s it for us –  Happy summer! We’ll see ya in the Fall.   

 peace

 

April @ Encino

Posted in anime, Crafts, Games & Gaming, Uncategorized with tags on May 7, 2017 by encinolibraryteens

Besides our fun experiences with the Oculus Rift this month, Encino Teens also did a lot of other cool activities worth sharing. We had a particularly game-centric month in teen club with our awesome teens bringing in their own card games to share. We played both One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Betrayal at House on the Hill. We also got a little crafty this month making our own fiesta float and painting light switch plates. April was also a super sugary month in the snacks department with munchies including brownies, cookies, candy, and cupcakes. Anime club featured epic discussions on subbed vs. dubbed, as well as viewing of five different anime series throughout the month. Come join us in May for more entertaining times in the Encino Teen Room! 🙂 🙂

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!
