My First Year as a Teen Librarian and Teen Tech Week

I started my blog catering to children's services. I still love doing that but my focus now is improving YA services. I am starting my YA programs with Teen Tech week. For all of those who do not know what Teen Tech Week is, it is a national initiative sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association and is aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of this initiative is to proved educational program and resources with DVDs, databases, audiobooks, and video games. I was concerned at first with what programs I can find engaging for teens. So I been communicating with other children and teen staff about possbile ideas. Teen Tech Week is next week and I am hoping it will be successful. During the week, the programs I have lined up are Microsoft Publisher, ebook workshop, gaming workshop, and Pinterest. Below is a flyer I've created for the program. Wish me luck!
