When you post that your library will be closed for a holiday, remind patrons that although the building will be closed, they can still access all your library's online resources 24x7 during the holidays. For those who receive an eBook reader or tablet as a gift on Christmas Day, they can begin to download free eBooks right away!
Get ready to showcase your library's technology offerings during Teen Tech Week™. This year, TTW is March 8-14th and will be celebrated with a theme of "Libraries are for Making."
The purpose of Teen Tech Week is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of digital media, especially the nonprint resources offered through libraries, such as e-books, e-readers, databases, audiobooks, and social media.
There are lots of ways your library can participate in Teen Tech Week: you can offer special programs or activities, or simply encourage teens and parents to come to the library and check out your tech resources.
Here are free toolkits to plan for TTW at your library:
