National Library Week – April 9-15, 2017 “Libraries Transform”

What’s happening in libraries today? They’re more about doing than borrowing – more about connecting than simply plugging in. Whether you want to get involved in your community, find a job, start a business, or simply get ahead, your library is the key to opportunity. Libraries and librarians transform their communities by opening a world of possibilities!

Visit Kewanna Public Library April 9-15 during National Library Week, or visit I Love Libraries.ORG   For more information call Kewanna Union Township Public Library at 574-653-2011 or check out our Facebook page.

KUTPL will celebrate Teen Tech Week March 5-11.

 The theme is “Be the Source of Change.”

Join us for our TNT Tech Show.  Attend the TNT (Teens in Town) Meeting on Tuesday, March 7 @ 4:30. Bring your favorite tech device and show us how you use it.

Teens, pick up a Tech Trivia sheet and answer the tech questions.  Be sure to fill out a Teen Tech survey too.

All teens that attend the TNT meeting, explain their tech device, answer the tech trivia  questions, or fill out a tech survey will receive an entry in our Teen Tech Week contest.

Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by YALSA and is aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of Teen Tech Week is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of digital media, especially the nonprint resources offered through libraries, such as e-books, e-readers, databases, audiobooks, and social media.

Teen Tech Week encourages teens to use libraries’ nonprint resources for education and recreation, and to recognize that librarians are qualified, trusted professionals in the field of information technology. Teen Tech Week began in 2007 and has a general theme of Get Connected @ your library.

Millions of teens do not have access to a home computer and, were it not for libraries, would miss opportunities to gain important digital literacy skills.  Libraries offer a bridge across the digital divide.Libraries also recognize that digital media plays an important part in a teens’ life.  That is why more libraries than ever are helping teens build critical digital literacy skills, which they will use to obtain scholarships, secure jobs, effectively manage their online identity and more.
