Teen Tech Week 2011 is March 6-12. This week is a celebration of teens using technology and the library. The theme for Teen Tech Week 2011 is “Mix and Mash @ your Library,” which refers to the way that teens can customize technology and make it their own.
There is a lot of fun and free technology that teens can use at the library. Some awesome things we have are laptop computers, video games to play at at the library, free music downloads, video games to check out and take home, and free audiobook downloads!
We are celebrating Teen Tech Week with special technology programs:
