We’re three months into our anniversary year!
Hope your first ever Teen Tech Week celebration was amazing–teens at my library dared me to try DDR and Guitar Hero at our Game Crazy day, and the results were predictably predictable–but fun! We’ve defaulted all the computers adjacent to or in our teen areas to the library’s TeenSpace page rather than the main library website, and we’re getting a lot more action that way. Our Tech guys put together a “Gadgets & Gizmos” goody bag for a staff workshop on Teens & Tech–how to make the match, so I was able to surprise Roderick the next day by recognizing his Playstation 2, and he eagerly showed us the games he’s got on his.
YALSA & technology make the match as we celebrate 50 great teen spaces in libraries, and the teens who enjoy using them at our flickr site–check it out, and add your own at http://www.flickr.com/groups/teenspaces/
Looking forward to April 19 and Support Teen Literature Day–we’ve got teens podcasting their favorite first paragraphs for books you just can’t put down after you’ve started, and library staff booktalking new reads from our local Best Books list.
What are your plans?
Keep up with the 50th Anniversary celebrations at our wiki
