Teen Tech Week, March 9–15, is a national, annual event that promotes the use of technology, tools and services for teen library users. Check out www.tscpl.org/teens for teen-specific blog posts this week and all year round.

The library’s Kids Library staff is committed to serving this energy-filled demographic all year round, with two areas in the library, David J’s and The Edge, and programs that include everything from Open-Mic Night to how to cook for yourself. The library’s Oveson-Campbell Homework Center offers time dedicated to teen students.

While you are here, ask our Teen Librarians to find you some great websites or books on whatever interests you.
