Teen Tech Week is a time for libraries to show teens all the cool tech goodies we have to offer, and I am more than happy to show my library teens all the ways that the East Greenbush Community Library supports their digital lifestyle!
You may already realize that you can use computers with free internet access at our library and that we are an excellent source of free WiFi. But, did you know that we provide you with free, 24/7 access to lots of databases that can help you with your homework or personal research? Or that you can download FREE e-books and audiobooks on Overdrive.com using your library card? If you don’t have an e-reader or an MP3 player, you can still check out an audiobook on CD or Playaway. Did you realize that we have circulating video game collections with games from platforms like Wii, PS2/PS3, and XBOX 360? And, don’t worry about running out to buy the latest Glee soundtrack or that season of Lost you’ve been dying to watch again — you can just borrow them (and many more CDs and DVDs) from the library!
During Teen Tech Week 2011, the East Greenbush Community Library is encouraging all our teens to check out some of our digital collections — and doing so will even get you a prize! Just stop by the Children’s Room with your library card, and you will get a prize if you have any audiobooks or video games checked out on your card!
Happy Reading — and Listening, Watching, & Gaming!
