Appy Hour

At my library, our teen love the Cream & Sugar photo app.  It resembles old timey photo booth strip.  Teens can hold up pictures of empowering messages and you can add text to the bottom-a hashtag perhaps.  Cut them out and put them in books as bookmarks.What are some of your favorite apps for teens?  How can you use them for social empowerment?See More

Phew, we made it and here the last idea for your last minute TTW passive programming.

Day #17: Share Your Stories

Most of your teens are probably on Instagram and Snapchat and chances are they share stories.  Stories allows users to use a series of photos and videos to tell a message.

For a passive program, have teens choose a cause.  For subsequent photos or videos they can hold up hashtags, state why they are standing up for their cause, tips, hotline phone numbers/websites for additional assistance, books, artwork, etc.  Make…

Day #16: Post its for Change

Teen Tech is in full swing and if you are looking for a quick passive idea that doesn't cost anything, go and raid your supply closet!

Set out a bunch of Post its of all sizes, shapes, and colors and ask teens to draw a picture of change or write a message/poem/hashtag of change.  Then stick them all over your teen room, YA collection, or your library.  You can even spell out a word or create a picture with the Post…

Day #15: Chalk Art Gallery

It's been unseasonably warm so why not take Teen Tech Week outside.  Simply have teens choose a cause, supply chalk, and have teens promote their cause outside of the library.  Take pictures and post to social media.…
