Teens to 'Geek Out" @ the library

Teen Tech Week™ is March 4–10. It's a great time for teens to Geek Out @ the library and discover the outstanding tech services Fauquier County Public Library has to offer - from online homework help to e-books, movies, music, audio books, databases and more.

Drop in at any Fauquier library March 5-10 to enjoy fun activities just for teens. Be sure to vote for your favorite book, movie, or video game in the Teen Choice Awards for a chance to win prizes. Select books from a display of popular genres: steampunk, dystopian, science fiction and more!

Teens’ use of technology has increased dramatically in recent years, yet more teens are doing this from home instead of the library. The Pew Internet & American Life project found that 93 percent of teens go online, with many using social networking sites, finding news and information, sharing content they create, and looking for information on health, according to the Young Adult Library Services Association website.

It's good to know that the library is a trusted resource for accessing information and that librarians are here to help teens use electronic resources effectively and efficiently. Teen Tech Week aims to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technology, especially those that are offered through libraries.

Wii Tournament is Back!
