Teen Tech Week is March 7-13.’ Have you made your plans?’ If not, check out the 2010 Teen Tech Week wiki for programming and promotional resources.’ The TTW committee has been working hard to provide librarians with a variety of ideas and links to resources to implement those ideas.’ A few of the programming ideas from the wiki are TTW Bingo (I’m going to try this one), Book Soundtracks, and some quick Online Interaction ideas.
If you have already planned your activities for the week, the TTW committee would love for you to share those plans.’ Librarians love to share, right? Go to the wiki and click Teen Tech Week 2010 @ your library, then click the link to log in/create account.’ ‘ Once you’re logged in, you simply click the edit tab and add your plans.’ It’s fast and easy!
As a school librarian, I know how busy this time of year can be for schools, but celebrating Teen Tech Week is doable.’ You don’t have do anything big.’ Simply making a display of technology-related books is a good place to start.’ Also, if the timing is bad for you, like it is for me, you could reschedule the event for a better week.’ Some of the promotional materials available from ALA Graphics are undated for this purpose.
You can still register your library for Teen Tech Week!’ One of the perks of registration is access to this year’s logo which, you can then use on your library’s promotional materials.
