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! 🙂

May @ Encino!

Posted in Games & Gaming, San Antonio Public Library, Uncategorized with tags on June 4, 2017 by encinolibraryteens

Welcome to May at Encino! We had such a fun month with lots of DIY including slime stress balls, Mother’s Day cards, and painting tea-light candle holders. 

Big screen gaming this month featured an epic smash bros battle and eight teens participating in Air Console games on our iPads! Encino Teens also went retro with out gaming this month featuring classics like Clue and Battleship. (PS. It was Mr. Green in the conservatory with the knife!)

And because ya’ll know we like to munch during our programs (NOMZ!) this month we made some really delicious stuff like muddy buddies, make-your-own trail mix, and grilled cheese cakepops! Who knew our teens had such culinary talent?

Come out in June for our Summer Reading Kickoff Party (June 7th) and *new* programs starting June 13th 🙂 🙂 !! 

Landa Teens : May ’17

Posted in Crafts, Library Programs, San Antonio Public Library, Science, teen library services, teen volunteer with tags , , , , , , on June 1, 2017 by landalibraryteens

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

 

Landa Teens’ April Hangouts

Posted in Library Programs, San Antonio Public Library, teen library services with tags , , , , on May 6, 2017 by landalibraryteens

This April, Landa Teens celebrated Poetry Month with bad haikus, honored Fiesta with Paper flower making, had Cooking Club : Pancake Art edition, and finally completed / revealed the  Teen Night Suggestion Box — Teens worked hard to make it “Glamorous with a bit of Crazy”. Deciding which protocols would be followed to choose each week’s event was also a challenge, but they agreed on a Plan of Action and were so excited to do even more in leading Teen Night. Big props to Teen Volunteer Cortney who led the project. Well done, Landa Peeps! 

Landa Teens – Poetry Month

Posted in Library Programs, San Antonio Public Library, teen library services, Uncategorized with tags , , on April 12, 2017 by landalibraryteens

This week Landa Teens dug deep into their souls to express the inexpressible. They searched for and copied out favorite bad Haikus and then created their own. A return to Black Out Poetry was a favorite. Happy Poetry Month all!
