(Official release - Teen Tech Week 2015)
Teen Tech Week is when libraries make the time to showcase all of the great digital resources and services that are available to help teens succeed in school and prepare for college and 21st century careers.
Celebrate with the "Libraries are for Making..." theme during YALSA’s Teen Tech Week March 8-14, 2015. Demonstrate the value your library gives to the community by offering teens a space to extend learning beyond the classroom where they can explore, create and share content. Libraries can tailor the making theme to show your community exactly how you connect in meaningful ways with teens in order to help them gain the digital literacy skills they need to be successful. Help get the word out about this event with the hashtag #TTW15

Caribbean Genealogy Library Hosts Open House to celebrate Family History Month St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Curious about your roots? Not sure where to begin with making a family tree? Have you hit a wall with your current research? Come to the Caribbean Genealogy Library Open House! October is officially listed as Family History Month within the U.S. It is a time to reflect on our roots and celebrate our unique histories and identities.
To celebrate, the Caribbean Genealogy Library (CGL) on St. Thomas is hosting a Family History Month Open House. It takes place October 18th, from 1pm to 5pm. The public is welcome to come have a tour of the library and learn about the wonderful books and resources available for learning about Virgin Islands history and families.
Library Card Sign-up Month is a celebration held each September during which librarians across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all.
This year, Stan Lee, comic book legend and co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, X-men, Iron Man and the Fantastic Four, joins us as Honorary Chair. A library card is a key resource in achieving academic success, and the library is the perfect place to spend quality family time together. This September visit your local library with your children and teens to and sign up for a library card!
