Teen Tech Week in March offers something for everybody
Stop by the library this and check out the special events for Teen Tech Week, March 9-15. Each library will be offering something.
At Wheatfield, when teens in grades 6-12 check out items using their card, they can put their name in a drawing for a gift card. We will also be showing the movie Catching Fire on Tuesday, March 11 at 4pm. There will be a short trivia about the book before the movie starts, and the winner of the trivia contest will win a prize. Registration is required, and refreshments will be served.
At DeMotte, teens can take part in a Wii Gaming program on Tuesday, March 11 from 3-8 pm. DeMotte also has the West Room Writers, a creative writing group open to teens, on March 10 from 5:30-6:30pm.
Rensselaer will be offering an "Antiquated Tech Petting Zoo." Teens, adults and supervised children are invited to stop by during Teen Tech Week and check out a manual typewriter, an early computer, a first generation PDA and more technology from the far, and not so far, past. Teens taking part in the petting zoo can enter a drawing for a gift card.
Wheatfield also has a Teen Book Discussion on March 20 from 4-5pm on the book Every Day by David Levithan. Registration is required, and books are available at the front desk. Refreshments will be served. This is open to grades 9-12.
