During Teen Tech Week, public and school libraries will present a variety of programs. “'In the age of instant access to the Web it is extremely important that teens develop solid information literacy skills,' said Young Adult Library Services Association President Kim Patton. 'Often teens are left guessing what Web content is trustworthy and how much personal information they should share. Education is the key to safe and ethical use of the Web and other technologies, and Teen Tech Week will provide library staff with the opportunity to work with both parents and teens on how to become safe, smart and effective users of technology.'” (Source: 2/15/11 ALA Press Release)
