There is a very exciting week for our teens right around the corner!
It is Teen Tech Week and we will celebrate from March 4-10. This year's theme is Libraries Are You Creating!
As the Teen Tech Week YALSA Ning states,
This year's theme encourages teens to take advantage of all the great digital tools offered through the library to become content creators, and to leverage library resources to share out their creations, whether they be podcasts, videos, apps, games, wearable tech, or some other fabulous invention or creation!
I love how this ties into Makerspaces and all of the creating that takes place in our libraries every day. Our teens are going to love this special week of creating and making too!
