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

To do a zine program during TTW at your library, simply lay out pencils; markers; and paper. Display instructions on how to fold a zine or your can show Youtube videos about zines for inspiration and information.  Check out this…
