Special guest Mariana Garcia will kick off the event with the National Anthem. A video of Garcia’s impromptu rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a Holmes High School volleyball game has recently gone viral, earning the attention of Inside Edition, Fox, and CNN among others.
This free event is produced for teens by teens in collaboration with community partners who serve teens in San Antonio. Teens wills have the opportunity to experiment with electric guitars and keyboards as well as to tour the Teen Library recording studio. The Fridge food truck will be on site.
The Teen Library at Central opened on May 12, 2015 and is a 6,000-square-foot space, located on the third floor of the Central Library. This dedicated space offers teens out-of-school learning opportunities to engage in a variety of cutting-edge activities. Spaces within the Teen Library include a “Pop-Lab” that allows teens to explore 3D printing and emerging technologies; a recording studio that allows teens to create content (video and music production); a Wi-Fi lounge area, gaming space and computer lab for projects; and the teen book and resource collection, which includes teen fiction, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) materials, Manga and graphic novels.
