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! 🙂 🙂

This past month Encino Teens had the amazing opportunity to use Teen Services’ Oculus Rift System! We all had so much fun trying out this cool piece of tech and are so excited to see its many applications as it travels around to different teen programs in our system! Encino Teens tested the capacities of the VR by playing with the Oculus Dreamdeck, running into aliens in the Farlands game, and going on a trip around a virtual world in Lucky’s Tale. Enjoy some pictures of our teens interacting with the Oculus Rift below 🙂

Welcome to a #throwbackthursday featuring Encino Teens!

March was another awesome month at the Encino Library!

This month we were:

Crafty–> At Teen Club our teens got to be super crafty making shrinky dink key rings, sharpie “marbled” coasters, and paintings to hang in the teen room.

Techy–> Things got techy for Teen Tech Week with our makey-makey, led throwies, and ipad gaming.

Chefy–>Throughout the month we also did our fair share of cooking with more delicious cake-pop maker creations and fruity smoothies.

Come join us in April for fiesta celebrations and the testing of the Teen Services’ new Oculus Rift system!

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*

Encino Teen Time

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!
