I'm actually looking into a program that I read about in the latest issue of VOYA. It's called MuVChat, and it allows movie viewers to text in comments about the movie and have them appear on screen. (www.muvchat.com) As a MST3K fan, I'm pretty excited about it. At this point, we're only in the program testing stages-haven't hosted an actual event yet. So I cannot speak to the success of the program as of yet. But I'm hoping to launch it during TTW to see how it goes. The program filters out any obscenities that might try to sneak through. There are costs involved, so just something to be aware of should you look into hosting an event like this. Just wanted to share! :)
We plan to have a desk where our teens help patrons use their technological devices--e-readers, i-pods, i-pads, cameras, cell phones, etc. At the end of the week, I will have a teen craft--just not sure what yet! Maybe something from old CDs.
The Berne Public Library will be hosting a Retro Gaming Night. The systems include Atiri, Sega Genesis, and Nintendo(Thanks to my kids.) I have to drag out some old tv's for the evening and set up stations for each system. The library will also have a display of tech books.
I have a short display but the teens on our Weds night will be collaborating on our online libguide for comics! I didn't receive the Tech Resource Pack though. Boo!
