About Teen Tech Month
Teen Tech Month is all about DIY. Check in and find tons of cool stuff available at our libraries. You know we have books, but we also have great DVDs to watch and CDs of most of the Grammy artists to listen to. Have a blast at our video game tournaments, take a smartphone photography class, make robots and tech sculptures and movies, celebrate the cinematic release of Divergent with a faction tea party, plus lots more. There’s so much going on, and it’s all at your library in March!
