Teen Tech week at the Library
Teen Tech Week 2010 is March 7-13th. This national initiative aimed at teens and their teachers and parents encourages teens to take advantage of the library’s many non-print resources. This year’s theme “Learn, Create, Share @ Your Library,” is aimed at increasing teen creativity in both the brick and mortar and virtual libraries. Forsyth County Public Library offers DVDs, music, audiobooks, gaming, online homework help, social networking, technology workshops, designed to open teen minds and expand their imagination, creativity and curiosity to the possibilities of the world around them.
