  • On the heels of a new kids website, we've now redesigned the teen website,  teen.emmaclark.org ,  including a new logo for the department.  The website was created by in-house staff and is consistent with the main webpage, which was unveiled last year. The top banner of the teen website includes log-in and search-the-catalog functions.  The main menu items are clear and simple to navigate (“Home”, “E-Resources”, “Programs”, “Volunteer Opportunities”, “Teen Art Display”, “Teen Tech Program” and “Bibliographies”), and they drop down to more specific headings.  The homepage highlights the latest happenings in the Teen Department and includes recommended reading.  Some notable features include information about library programs and events specific to teens, online databases and homework help, free downloads (books, magazines, music),

  • We're pleased to announce our new Video Game Collection in the Teen Department...available NOW! In addition, there will be video games available in the Children's Department starting this fall. Video and computer game playing, when practiced in moderation, has many benefits.  While kids are gaming, they are also learning how to collaborate in a team, strategize, explore, make decisions, and take risks.  The games help kids prepare for today’s fast-paced digital world.  Video games can be fun and motivating, and along with books and traditional games, they are another method of educating our youth in the 21 st century. We have games for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, WiiU, Xbox360, and Xbox One, with popular titles such as Splatoon , Just Dance 2015,
