What are your planning for your public library for TTW 2017?

I have always felt that TTW can be many things. So many in fact it can be hard to focus on on aspect or another even when there is a theme. The public library where I work is located in a school district where there are no school librarians. For that reason I usually focus on research/database use/promotion.

School Libaries

Many of us in the public library sector are always looking for ways to partner with public schools. Teen Tech Week is a perfect time to make those connections. We all have a similar mission, and that is seeing youth succeed, as well as connecting them with resources they may not have access to through their school library. Many public libraries, especially those in urban settings offer great remote technologies such as databases, and ebooks that public schools are frequently not able to afford.…See More
