Teen Tech Week

It’s national Teen Tech Week! Did you know we have a lot of really cool Maker technology available right here at the library? If you’ve never tried to play the piano on a banana or explore a video game dungeon using computer code, this week might be the time. Drop by after school each day to check out something new and see what you can make! For more information, please contact Jade Austin at jaustin@wellstown.org or call the library at 207-646-8181.

It’s time to get ready for our next batch of Random Fandoms!
