Have you ever noticed how close the words “teen” and “tech” are? That’s because what most teens don’t know about popular technology isn’t worth knowing.
“March is Teen Tech Month at MLS” said Emily Williams, the library system’s Young Adult Services Coordinator. “Once again this year we’ve arranged a lineup of events aimed at teens that are all based in some way on the kind of tech teens love to use. Some of the programs are like ones we’ve presented in the past, but most are new and draw on technologies we’ve never highlighted before.”
MLS encourages interested teens to call the library at which they wish to attend a program to check on pre-registration or with any other questions.
All programs are free.
