Press Play @ Our Library!

Press Play at Your Library March 8 – 14! Think the library is all about books? Think again. Libraries are chock-full of tech toys like CDs, DVDs and video games, and they're a great place to get connected to gaming, music, the Web and more. Stop by the Mepham High School Library or visit our Website during Teen Tech Week to press play today.

Local teens will be tuning in at the library as Mepham High School celebrates the second annual Teen Tech Week. They join thousands of other libraries and schools across the country who are celebrating this year’s theme, "Press Play @ Your Library®.” Teen Tech Week is a national initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of the initiative is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those that are offered through libraries. Teen Tech Week encourages teens to use libraries' non-print resources for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals in the field of information technology.
