Join us for our first Mama Me-Dia session on Media literacy and Youth, the Parents Guide!  

With personal devices in the hands of more and more youth all the time, parents have to do a lot of work managing media systems, privacy and app selection for their children. Come to this session presented by Maryann Kempthorne, NVDPL's Manager of Innovation and Learning and a media librarian, to see how to manage the work and build your media literacy!    

  • Be aware of the special cases for youth when it comes to media use and security
  • Build confidence enforcing their child’s right to privacy in their home and on mobile devices
  • Have some greater sense of how to set out rules and guidelines for use and access with the changing nature of kids and technology!

We will have a few door prizes to add to the learning as well. See you there! 

Register online.
