Celebrate Teen Tech Week

Sooke Public Library offers technical resources to local teens

All branches of Vancouver Island Regional Library are inviting teens to “Check In” during Teen Tech Week to learn about the incredible variety of resources available for teenage customers. From online homework help, free downloadable music, DVDs, and book clubs, to recommendations for great reads and teen advisory groups.

Teen Tech Week is celebrated across the country from March 10 to 16. The 2013 theme invites teens to Check In @ your library!

At the Sooke library branch teens are invited to drop by the library for more information or better yet, book some time to meet with a librarian for their own personalized tour. During Teen Tech Week, the branch will be showcasing the library’s wide variety of free, online resources available to educate and entertain teens. For fun, they’re also going to be creating an “old tech” display and asking everyone to guess its current equivalent for the chance to win a new tech-related prize.

The purpose of the week is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those that are offered through libraries such as DVDs, databases, and audiobooks. For more information call: 250-642-0358.
