San Antonio Public Library began partnering with Fiesta Youth in fall 2016 on a set of Pride programs for teens at Central, Bazan, Encino, and Westfall libraries. The mission of Fiesta Youth is to empower youth to build a future where all people are accepted and loved as they are. The teen Pride programs will continue this fall at Central, Bazan, Landa, and Encino libraries. The programs celebrate the diversity of the San Antonio community and provide teens opportunities to meet, exchange ideas, and participate in fun out-of-school learning activities.  

 

Copies of the titles are available at all San Antonio Public Library locations and eBooks and eAudiobooks are available at mysapl.org/TeenPride.
