Greenwich Library invites you to celebrate teen Tech Week and "DIY @ Your Library" March 9-March 15. The Library is full of tech toys like video games, CDs, and DVDs as well as books, music, movies & TV you can download. And of course, we're a great place to get connected to online homework help, SAT/ACT/AP test prep, research resources and more.
Each year YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) designates the second week in March as Teen Tech Week. The purpose of this initiative is to ensure teens are competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those that are offered through their libraries.
Teen Tech Week encourages teens to get connected to their libraries and explore nonprint resources for both education and recreation.
Here are a few ways you can "DIY @ Greenwich Library" during Teen Tech Week:
· Get yourself a library card
· Follow-us on Facebook and Twitter
· Download free music with your library card through Freegal
· Become a Teen Tech Volunteer (and earn community service hours, too)
