Teen Tech Week is a national initiative aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults, to help teens become competent and ethical users of technologies.
During Teen Tech Week, we offer events that encourage teens to use libraries’ nonprint resources for education and recreation, give them the opportunity to share their knowledge, and introduce them to librarians who are qualified, trusted professionals in the field of information technology. Learn more all week on TATAL, the Teen blog.
This year’s Teen Tech Week activities include:
Teen Gaming – Swing by the library and try to beat your friends and our librarians at games like “Wii Sports Resort” and “Super Smash Brothers.”
