Teen Tech Time

Looking for a great way to fulfill community service hours? Sign up to be a teen tech! 

We are looking for teens willing to commit to an hour out of their schedules to assist adult patrons with navigating their devices in one-on-one sessions. No professionals required; you probably know all the answers to the questions you’ll get! You already know how to navigate your iPhones, iPads, emails, Google, and much more so why not share your knowledge?


All you have to do is contact Jessica at the library to sign up for the hour(s) that works best with your schedule.





If you want to stay informed on all the upcoming Young Adult programs, email jzaccagniniYA@biblio.org to sign up for our YA Newsletter…don’t worry, we won’t spam you 😉


Here  is our first edition of the YA Newsletter for Fall 2018
