Laptops were available for interested teens to build and create their Minecraft worlds. Despite the simple, pixel-y graphics, Minecraft has had sweeping popularity among young gamers, who can customize their player, buildings and terrain.

Minecraft ‘builds’ imagination at public library

By CHRISTOPHER SALINAS

Creating buildings, surviving in a forest and use of the imagination are just some of the many things teenagers can do when they visit the public library to play a video game.
Video games are sometimes seen as just another thing to do for fun or a time waster, but in Minecraft, players are free to do what they want and shape their own experience. This allows for adults to be able to create an environment that is safe and educational for younger people.
The San Marcos Public Library took advantage of this unique aspect and held their first video game event on Thursday called Teen Minecraft. This gathering was free and open to teenagers ages 12 to 17. Laptops to play the game on were provided by the library thanks to funds and donations from the Friends of the Library volunteer organization.
