Teens at the library will be celebrating Teen Tech Week the week of March 6 through 12! Teen Tech Week is a national initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of the initiative is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technology, especially those types offered through libraries. Teen Tech Week encourages teens to take advantage of the technology at libraries for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals who can help them achieve greater digital literacy. This year’s theme is “Create it At Your Library!,” asking teens to use technology and handiwork skills to create something amazing. Check into the main library for a free Teen Craft on March 7, from 4 to 6:00 PM in the Gozzer Room, using ModPodge and digital photography apps to create photo-transfer boards, or join us for Creative Writing Club on March 8 from 4 to 5:00 PM in the Story Room to learn about online writing communities and take on the “Twist Fate” writing challenge. Not able to make it to a program? Visit the library throughout the month of March to check out displays of DIY, tech, and maker titles in Teen Central. You’re sure to find something that inspires your creative side.
