Teen Tech Week | Arts & Culture
Geek Out @ Your Library is the theme for Teen Tech Week 2012. Teens chose and voted for the topic for Teen Tech Week that began Sunday, March 4 and continues through Saturday, March 10, 2012.
During Teen Tech Week libraries across the country will have the opportunity to showcase the technology they offer with programs and events for teens. The events will focus on areas that include online services and homework help to digital literacy focused programs through resources like e-books, movies, music, audio books, and databases.
