It's Almost Teen Tech Week!
 Teen Tech Week will be celebrated March 6-12 with the theme "Mix & Mash @ your library."  Teen Tech Week is an opportunity for libraries to throw open their virtual and physical doors and highlight to their community all the great nonprint resources that are available to teens and their families.  Visit www.ala.org/teentechweek<http://www.ala.org/teentechweek> to register (it's free) and to access ideas on how to celebrate the event.

Free Reading Resources to Download
Free downloadable bookmarks, spine labels and book plates are available for libraries so they can feature YALSA's 2011 book and media award winners, including titles that won one of YALSA's six literary awards or were named to one of YALSA's recommended lists.  Visit http://tinyurl.com/YALSAbest11 to access the materials.
