Happy Teen Tech Week! Libraries all over the country are creatively celebrating their nonprint resources this week, and one of the many things I love about working for YALSA is that librarians often share the cool things they and their teens do throughout the week.

Yvonne Jackson, library media specialist at Thurgood Marshall High School in Missouri City, Texas, sent me a promotional video that the library’s book club made about the technology available to students at TMHS. (The video will be available until March 27.) The video highlights playaways, audiobooks, online homework help, educational games, and all the other resources that the LMS offers to the school, and it played during the morning announcements each day. Check it out, after the jump!
