In celebration of Teen Tech Week™, Huntington City-Township Public Library invites teens to Check In @ Your Library!
This year’s theme encourages teens to come and see the outstanding technology available at the library, from services such as online homework help to resources like e-books, movies, music, audiobooks, databases and more. Teens’ use of technology 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. Teens need to know that the library is a trusted resource for accessing information and that librarians are the experts who can help teens develop the skills they need to use electronic resources effectively and efficiently.
