This Teen Tech Week™ (March 10 – 16, 2013), the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) invites you to Check In @ your library! This year’s theme encourages libraries to throw open their physical and virtual doors to teens and showcase the outstanding technology they offer, from services such as online homework help and digital literacy-focused programs to resources like e-books, movies, music, audiobooks, databases and more.
Here at the Chicopee Public Library we have great technology resources:
- Audibooks on CD and Playaway on our shelves
- DVDs (including anime, check out the Foreign Films section)
- Ebooks and Audiobooks you can download to your computer or mobile device
- Free MP3s from Freegal (log in with your library card)
- Magazines you can read on your computer or mobile device from Zinio
- Online databases for research
- Online language courses from Mango Languages
- Cypress Resume, an online resume builder
- Practice tests for the SAT, GED, ASVAB and more in Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center
- A Facebook page with updates about teen programs and interesting links
Click the links above to get started (some will require your library card), or ask a librarian next time you’re in the library!
If you have questions you can always ask me, Erin Daly, Youth Librarian (if you’re looking for me try the Children’s Room) or send me an email edaly at cwmars dot org.
