Local teens will tune in at the library as the Anoka County Library celebrates Teen Tech Week™ March 6 -12 with free events in every library. Anoka County Library joins thousands of other libraries and schools across the country who are raising awareness of how libraries creates space to extend teen learning beyond the classroom. Creating opportunities for teens to gather ideas, acquire information, and be inspired.
“Technology is the way of our world these days,” said Anoka County Commissioner Robyn West. “Our libraries are well equipped to bring teens and tech together to connect and succeed.”
Teen Tech Week encourages teens to take advantage of the technology at libraries for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals who can help them achieve greater digital literacy.
"Getting teens into libraries is essential. Offering gaming, Minecraft programs, access to public computers, and online homework help gets teens in the door,” said Anoka County Library Board President, Dan Greensweig. “Once teens are in the library, we can show them all the possibilities that exist thanks to library resources and technology access.”
