YALSA has created a number of publicity resources for you to use to promote your library's Teen Tech Week involvement. For your convenience, we've created a downloadable, customizable toolkit for you to use.
The toolkit includes:
- a sample press release
- scripts for public service announcements
- sample letters to the editor (one from teens, one from parents)
All items are available in the Publicity Toolkit (zip file with four Word documents and hi- and lo-res versions of the Get Connected logo). Download it now!
You can also download and use any one of six recorded public service announcements featuring Tom Kenny, the voice of Spongebob Squarepants. The six PSAs were provided by Galaxy Press. Download all six PSAs (zip file containing six mp3 files).
