Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Teentober Literacy & Writing

Teen Think Tank

It's the second week of TeenTober, and we're celebrating something near and dear to every librarians' heart: literacy and writing! What does the term "literacy" even mean? Doesn't it just refer to the ability to read and write? Not anymore! To be literate in the 21st century, a person must be willing to constantly learn about and adapt to many different areas of life, subjects, and environments. How do you define literacy? What are some new and different ways you can demonstrate being literate today?

Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): TeenTober – Tech & Gaming

Teen Think Tank

TeenTober is a nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October that aims to celebrate teens (woohoo!). We promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways libraries help teens learn new skills and fuel their passions – both in and outside of the library. We celebrate by promoting programs and resources for teens with topics like reading and writing, technology, gaming, art and music.
