Encino Teens *brought it* to the teen room in August allowing us to turn up the volume on all our programs before the beginning of the school year. Chef Justin was back from the Food Bank with teens making delicacies from Asia and France. YUM! We continued our video game domination with epic super smash battles and mario kart races. Plus we pulled out some old favorites like Clue, Jenga, and Banagrams to round out our Teen Gaming nights.

We had two final movie nights to finish off summer 2017 featuring the stunning new Beauty and The Beast and the epic King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Haven’t seen them? We think you should!

Craft time! Y’all know we get crafty up here. This month we tried some new stuff –> printmaking and tie dye! Both came out so awesome!! For our last Teen Tuesday we took our crafting outside making tie dye pillowcases that the teens got to take home. Hilarity ensued when some teens forgot to use gloves and dyed their hands as well as the fabric…. Oh well, tie dye hands are a thing too right? ALSO! We *upgraded* our slime from last month with glittery clear slime. So stretchy and slimy!

Anime Club was full of old and new faces in August, culminating an awesome summer of Anime watching! Teens picked Deathnote, Full Metal Alchemist, Blood Blockade Battlefront, and Punch Line to watch throughout the month.

We know you’re bummed that summer is over and you have to go to school 😦 … BUT! turn that frown upside down and come hang with us in September! More gaming, movies, anime, snacks, crafts and who knows what else coming your way! Help us decide @ the Encino Library!

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!
