Thinking Ahead to Teen Tech Week 2013

Welcome to the website for Teen Tech Week 2013!  Teen Tech Week is coming up quickly, March 10th through March 16th, so what are some important things to be thinking of now?

Besides planning your programming for Teen Tech Week this is a great time to advocate for teen services at your library.  Special programs like TTW help highlight the successful programs and services you do for teens with administration, parents and the community.

If you don't have a Teen Advisory Group, this is an opportunity to start one and give your teens a chance to give suggestions and feel a sense of ownership with your library's TTW.  If you already have a TAG, get their input early and it will help shape your programming into something they want to attend and share with their friends.

Another reminder is to keep a lookout for new ideas, like Apps you can use with teen programs.  YALSA's App of the Week highlights Apps that are fun, good to know about and great to integrate into TTW programs.

Also, remember to check back here for more updates and ideas.

If you have any additional suggestions, add them to the comments!

Self-Directed Programs: Scavenger Hunts

An amazing way to get your tweens and teens to know the “unfamiliar” bits of your library is to do self-directed scavenger hunts. You know that your “kids” tend to congregate to one particular area- whether it's your teen space, a place with the most comfortable chairs or a low table for card gaming, or Read More →

Teen Tech Week: Self-Directed Contests

I am completely in love with self-directed contests. Also known as passive programming (which always leads my superiors to think that there is NO thought or work involved at all, which is not true), these self-directed contests get teens involved because they are: drawn into the library by the contest itself ask the staff questions Read More →
