Parent's Book Discussion – Screenwise

Kilton Conference Room

This is a book discussion session for parents who are concerned about their children's use of technology. We will discuss "Screenwise : helping kids thrive (and survive) in their digital world" by Devorah Heitner, PhD. Technology can seem overwhelming to parents, who often have little idea what is important to their kids online or how best to mentor them as they engage with the digital world. Today's kids are growing up with this technology, and it will continue to shape their daily lives as they grow. There is great value in developing good habits around online behavior.

Computer Autopsy

Kilton Conference Room

The Lebanon public libraries are retiring some older computers.  Rather than throw them in the landfill, we are using them for a program.  

In this program, we will completely disassemble and then reassemble the computers going over each part and what it does. 

This program is limited to 6 computers.  Children over the age of 12 may sign up on their own, or families can sign up together. Sign up to register.
