Encino Teens February Fun!

Posted in anime, Games & Gaming, Library Programs, San Antonio Public Library, Uncategorized with tags on March 2, 2017 by encinolibraryteens

Encino Teens had a really fun February that involved using our WiiU for all types of gaming, making pizza cake pops, drawing tons of cool anime and manga-inspired works, and constructing duck tape roses for our valentines. We munched our way through way too much heart-shaped candy, played a laugh-out-loud game of Superfight, and felt inner peace after doing some zentangle drawing. Our Anime Club finished the first season of Nanbaka (which we all highly recommend!), with some other anime episodes peppered in.  Join us for another fun-filled month in March featuring a special Teen Tech Week edition teen time and more Anime Club every Monday! *By Julia, your Encino Teen Librarian*

We had a  lot going on this week. Some teens got into watercoloring, look at that fish!

Besides painting, we worked on a jigsaw puzzle, played ping pong and generally goofed around.

Parman Teen Book Review: ““Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard

Posted in Uncategorized on January 31, 2017 by parmanlibraryteens


Red Queen is a dystopian, fantasy novel I didn’t merely like or enjoy; rather, I loved it. Although this book did not contain the most original characters or ideas, Aveyard executed them phenomenally in order to create a story that was absolutely electric and never had a dull moment. It was so engaging that I found myself holding my breath and avidly turning pages, eagerly awaiting the next plot twist as Mare Barrow, our protagonist, realizes a painful truth: anyone can betray anyone. My favorite part about the novel is the characters, all of whom are beautifully flawed in their own ways. Oftentimes, characters in young adult literature are molded into unrealistic epitomes of human perfection, or sickening villains without a heart or soul. On the other hand, Red Queen boasts characters that are both good and bad, confirming the universal truth that no one is perfect. Overall, Red Queen is a masterpiece, beautifully woven together to create an intricate tale of power and madness, love and rage, and loyalty and betrayal that I would recommend to all fantasy lovers.
