Teen Tech Week is March 4-10!
This Teen Tech Week™ (March 4–10), YALSA invites you to Geek Out @ your library! This year’s theme encourages libraries to throw open their physical and virtual doors and showcase the outstanding technology they offer, from services as digital literacy-focused programs to resources like ebooks, movies, music, audiobooks, databases and more.
Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association and is aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults.
The purpose of the initiative is to ensure teens are competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those offered through libraries such as DVDs, databases, audiobooks, and videogames.
Teen Tech Week encourages teens to use libraries' nonprint resources for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals in the field of information technology. Teen Tech Week began in 2007 and has a general theme of Get Connected @ your library.
