Tech 4 Teens @ TCPL: a giving is gorges fundraiser

"The Library helps me ‘get my geek on.’ Any interest I have - and I have many - I can indulge and pursue at the public library.” – Ben P., Teen Patron

Digital literacy is essential for success in any 21st century workforce. No one knows this better than the teens in our community.

As we examine local needs and national trends, it is clear that our library space and services must be re-imagined to better support our young people. Many of today’s teens are faced with serious social and economic challenges and the public library is their first and safest stop. Our teens deserve a greater number of tech devices for use in work and play. They require expert guidance and space to learn and share together.

With the help of your donations, our work at TCPL will support the development of 21st century workforce skills among homegrown talent. We seek to expand our role in promoting access to needed technology, so that our teens possess the abilities to navigate, manipulate, and stay ahead of emerging trends and know how to use technology responsibly and ethically

Your gift directly supports our community’s young people. Every dollar counts towards ensuring the equitable and thriving futures of our local teens, so please donate today!
