Teen Tech Week

This week Maud Marks celebrated our first Teen Tech Week.  Local teens and tweens came by the library on Wednesday and Thursday this week to learn coding.  They were able to program their very own computer games with the help of our new Young Adult Librarian, Ms. Lauren.  At the end, they were even able to play the very games they created.

Missed all the fun?  Don't worry we have more fun activities for the teen and tween age group coming up.  This next Thursday, after school, we will be hosting a Divergent party to celebrate the release of the upcoming movie.  And every Thursday at the same time we will be having various other activities such as movies, game days, or crafts.  Come join Ms. Lauren for all the fun!  Check out our calendar for what will be happening each week.

E-Resources for Teens

The library has resources that go wherever you do and can be accessed from your smart phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer, including the computers available for use in the library.

Access OverDrive to download popular books, music, and videos that are perfect for traveling, since you can have 20 items at a time and don’t even have to be in town to check them out. 

Visit the library’s Teens Know webpage to quickly access book recommendations, helpful homework resources, and more.
