This year's Teen Tech Week theme is "DIY (Do It Yourself) @ Your Library", so all teens ages 13 - 18 are invited to watch a recently released PG-13 movie based on the second book of a very popular series and see how extreme that idea can be in the Arena. We'll have a display consisting of library books of far more fun and sane ways to "do it yourself" you can try out with your friends. Pizza and refreshments will be served and raffle prizes will be given to lucky winners thanks to the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.
