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

SPACE HAS BEEN CLEARED!

Posted in San Antonio Public Library, teen library services with tags , , , , , , , on January 26, 2016 by igolibraryteens

The area that is to be the new Teen space has been cleared!

The Igo teens and the TLLC will begin to arrange and decorate the area to make it their own in the coming weeks.

The goal is to have the space finished by the end of February.

There will be a teen-only contest to see who comes up with the best name for the new space and the TLLC will vote for the best name.

Stay tuned!

Parman Teen Book Review: “The Infinite Sea” by Rick Yancey

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on July 3, 2015 by parmanlibraryteens

infinite sea

The Infinite Sea is the sequel to The 5th Wave, which I had already reviewed last week. If you have read The 5th Wave, I can assure you that The Infinite Sea is even more exciting, for the novel enlightens us about the pasts of many characters, including Poundcake, Ringer, and Evan Walker. It also answers many questions posed in The 5th Wave, including whether or not Evan will be able to keep his promise to Cassie, and the true purpose of the Others extermination of the human race. The novel also introduces a few new characters, including Grace, a Silencer like Evan, and Razor, a teenage boy that Ringer meets. I highly encourage all readers to read this beautiful page-turner in which a group of teenagers, fueled by despair and rage, struggle to hold on to hope, forgiveness, and love.

Teen Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on February 6, 2015 by parmanlibraryteens

Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that focuses on the events that occur in a dystopian society. Our protagonist, Guy Montag, is a fireman whose job is to set fires, rather than put them out. In this society, it is illegal to read or even own books, and those who violate this law will have their books and their house burned down by firemen, whose hoses pump gasoline instead of water. Montag’s wife, Mildred, is a materialistic, suicidal woman who is addicted to interactive television and fails to even converse with her husband. The light of the novel, and the character most of us will admire and relate to, is 17-year-old Clarisse McClellan, Montag’s neighbor who changes his perspective on life. In this fast-paced society, Clarisse is considered abnormal and forced to go to a psychiatrist because she enjoys taking walks, talking, and with the world around her. Clarisse feels that Montag is abnormal too, because she notices that he isn’t like the other firemen; he is willing to listen to her, and isn’t an intimidating figure of authority. Most of the novel focuses on the dark secret that Montag has been hiding from his wife, his boss Beatty, and the rest of society as it unravels, ruining his family and himself. Bradbury’s highly-acclaimed sci-fi novel is a cautionary tale that warns us against the overindulgence of technology, and a good read I highly encourage teens to consider.
