Teen Tech Week
March 07, 2011
When was the last time that you went a day without using your iPod, cell phone, computer, or television? You can't remember a time like that? Yeah, that's what we thought. Okay, not just us-- that's what the American Library Association thought when they launched Teen Tech Week.
Um, if you're already using electronic devices, why would you need a week to remind you to do that? You don't. You might enjoy seeing how the library can work with you to make your online experience richer.
Cell Phone: Call us, and we can look up what you need to know. You can also call to renew your items or to put other material you'd like on hold. MCPL's Liberty Branch's phone number is (816) 781-9240. You can find the other branches' numbers on our website, which brings me to...
Computer: You're reading this blog, right? Congrats! That means you've already found mymcpl.org. Have you looked into our Research Databases? We can hook you up with current, authoritative information (unlike that page you googled that was from 2001 and was full of typos). You can also manage your account online. Ask us what we have, and we'll gladly give you a tour of our virtual library.
Television: You can check out movies and TV shows from the library. If you don't see what you want, other branches or even other districts can send the exact DVD you're looking for here for you to check out and take home. If you're sick of watching movies at home, join our Anime club. Every month you can join other teens to watch movies, snack, and maybe draw, too.
Teen Tech Week runs March 6-11, 2011. For more information, click here.
