YALSA launched its new Teen Tech Week website at www.ala.org/teentechweek! This Teen Tech Weekâ„¢ (March 4â€“10, 2012), YALSA invites you to Geek Out @ your library! This year’s theme encourages libraries to throw open their physical and virtual doors to teens and showcase the outstanding technology they offer, from services such as online homework help and digital literacy-focused programs to resources like e-books, movies, music, audiobooks, databases and more.
