Congratulations to Teen Summer Reading Winners!

I know… Summer Reading already seems like a distant memory. School has started and you have homework, gossip, sports, relationships and fashion to think about (and not necessarily in that order).

But, take a moment to recognize the winners in our Teen Summer Reading Program Prize Drawing. Each winner received a $25.00 Visa Gift Card. Congratulations!

Show Us How Technology Has Changed Your Life

11 03 2008

Technology GadgetWhat would you do without your cell phone or your MySpace page?

Can you imagine trying to survive in a world where there was no Internet?

What do you think the future may hold for the evolution of technology?

Will there be a day when we wear mini-computers in our eyeglasses, or even have them attached to our bodies or hidden under our skin? Certain scientists are already theorizing these exact things.

We want to know what you think about all these issues.

Teen Tech Week kicked off on March 2nd, but you have the entire month to show us your creative side. Select libraries are holding photography and writing contests, with the subject, “Show Us How Technology Has Changed Your Life.”

Winners will be judged based on expert, as well as teen opinion (not that you guys aren’t experts). Winning work will be posted to the TeenSpace Blog. Entries are due by March 31st.
