Boston teens are invited to check out the Boston Public Library during Teen Tech Week, which takes place March 10-15. Seven neighborhood locations in the Boston Public Library system have events planned, ranging from coding and programming workshops to finding creative ways to re-use and recycle technology components via art.
Teen Tech Week is an annual and national initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association. In 2014, the theme is DIY @ your library (do it yourself) with the goal of raising awareness about how Boston Public Library creates a space to extend teens’ learning beyond the classroom where they can explore, create, and share content, and learn to be competent and ethical users of digital media.
The seven Boston Public Library locations participating in Teen Tech Week are: East Boston, Egleston Square, Hyde Park, Grove Hall, Mattapan, Uphams Corner, and the Central Library in Copley Square. The complete schedule of events for Teen Tech Week and beyond can be found by searching for “Teen Tech Week” in the Boston Public Library calendar, which is available via www.bpl.org/calendar.
