Teen Tech Week March 3rd - 10th at the Buena Park Library District

Buena Park Library District, located at 7150 La Palma Ave., is pleased to announce its participation in the American Library Association’s first annual Teen Tech Week, March 3rd – 10th, 2007. The Library will join thousands of other libraries across the country who are encouraging teens to use their libraries for the different technologies available to them as they "Get Connected @ your library®." This program is designed to show teens that the library is a trusted resource for accessing information and that librarians are the experts who can help them develop the skills they need to use electronic resources effectively and efficiently.

Youth Services Librarian, Phyllis Nisle, hopes to increase teen awareness of the different technological services that are available at the Library by offering a variety of events in which teens can participate. Events planned for this week include an Online Scavenger Hunt, a video contest, a Web Design class on Saturday, March 3rd from 9:00 am – 10:00 am (pre-registration is required), and a Sudoku Tournament on Tuesday, March 6th from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Visit the Library’s web page at to download the Online Scavenger Hunt or to obtain the entry form for the video contest.

For more information, or to register for the Web Design class, call the library at 714-826-4100 ext. 125 and ask for Phyllis.
