How I Geeked Out and Learned to Like It!

Cathy Leininger’s session, “How I Geeked Out and Learned to Like It!”

Description: “My LRC Student Advisory Committee came up with so many suggestions for Teen Tech Week and the “Geek Out” theme that we took a whole month to celebrate our various “geekinesses.” We even had some good conversations about diversity and bullying. Learn what worked and what didn’t through Star Wars / Star Trek week, Puzzle week including manga and anime, Dystopia week, and videogame week.”

Cathy hopes attendees will be able to: Plan a library program based on student interests and technology.
