Teen Tech Week 2016

150916-TTW16-logo2-highrez.jpg

This year’s theme encourages teens to extend learning beyond the classroom where you can explore, create and share content. From makerspaces and fun with crafts to digital production, your library lets you express yourself and connect with others who share your interests.

Teen Tech Week is a national initiative designed to celebrate technology and help you learn how to use technology ethically and safely. You’ll have fun at these programs, too!
