Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association and is aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of the initiative is to ensure that teens gain the digital literacy skills they need — with the help of libraries — in order to be successful in school and prepared to participate in a 21st century workforce.

All classes are free and open to the public. A RSVP is required, so contact Liz Willhoff for more information at 970-479-2190 or
