Bath library to offer ‘Teen Tech Week’ events

   BATH, Maine — Patten Free Library will host two events for teens during the week of March 10-16 as part of the Young Adult Library Services Association’s (YALSA) “Teen Tech Week 2013.”

  Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by the YALSA and is 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.

 On Tuesday, March 12, teens will have the opportunity to use the library’s six iPads to learn about the photography features and apps that can be used to make photo collages, comics, and other publications. The iPads will be made available in the teen space between 2:30 and 4 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. A librarian will be available to assist students as needed.

 On Thursday, March 14, teens are invited to a “Just Dance 4” session. Starting at 3:30 p.m., there will be a Wii game console set up in the second floor Community Room; the game, which involves following dance moves set to popular music, will be projected on the library’s oversized movie screen.  

The events are free; pre-registration is not required but would be appreciated. For questions regarding the events, contact Roberta Jordan at Patten Free Library (443-5141 x25,
