Geek Out @ your library

CHICAGO– As Web-enabled tools such as Facebook, texting and smartphone apps become a staple of teen culture, school and public libraries from coast to coast will throw open their physical and virtual doors to teens and showcase technological resources available @ your library during Teen Tech Week™, March 4 – 10, 2012. Teens by the thousands will improve their digital literacy skills as they take advantage of free library social networking and digital media workshops, e-books, databases, online homework help, gaming tournaments and much more.

Author Speaking Engagements Suspended

EVENT CANCELLED… Sadly, the Central Okanagan Teacher-librarians’ Association( COTLA) after much planning has had to suspend the week-long visit (March 5-9, 2012) of the award winning and Canadian author Eric Walters.

He was to read and present to almost 4000 grade 5 & 7 students at the Kelowna Community Theatre, and on site at some of our high schools. IT IS HOPEFUL THAT COTLA CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO BRING MR. WALTERS BACK FOR 2013.
