Teen Tech Week -Check In @ your library!

During Teen Tech Week™ (March 10 - 16, 2013), the Richmond Public library invites you to Check In @ your library! 
With this year's theme, Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) wants to encourage libraries to open their physical and virtual doors to teens and showcase the outstanding technology they offer, from services such as online homework help and digital literacy-focused programs to resources like e-books, audiobooks, databases and more.

Here at RPL, we want the teens to experience all of the programs RPL has to offer.

Teen Tech Week will be celebrated at the Main and North Avenue Branches. There are so many exciting things to do, from the digital art contest to exploring new technology trends in an open laptop computer lab. You can find out more information by going to the Events Calendar on the library's website or call both branches for more details.

Here are some "cool" things to do on your own during Teen Tech Week.
  • Follow us on our Social Media Outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr).
