Teen Tech Week
March 2 -8, 2008
Tune In @ Your Library
Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association and is aimed at teens, their parents,educators and other concerned adults.
The purpose of the initiative is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those that are offered through libraries such as DVDs, databases, audiobooks, and videogames. Teen Tech Week encourages teens to use libraries' nonprint resources for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals in the field of information technology.
Teen Tech Week began in 2007 and has a general theme of Get Connected @ your library. The 2008 sub theme is Tune In @ your library.
Teens, in order to gain the skills necessary to compete in today's job market, need access to digital and online information and trained professionals who can help them use these resources effectively, efficiently and ethically.
