Teens can learn about music and video production, graphic design and more at New Orleans Library | Entertainment/Life

The New Orleans Public Library’s Best Buy Teen Tech Center will host a virtual open house at 4 pm Wednesday, Feb. 16 on Twitch. Attendees will meet the center’s staff while engaging in games like Among Us, Minecraft, and Roblox, and exploring what tech is available to Teen Tech Center members. Register at nolalibrary.org/events.

The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is an interest-based learning environment for teens to experiment and master various new technologies with help from their peers and adult mentors. They can then share their work with other teens across the globe through The Clubhouse Network.

The center is located on the Main Library’s second floor and is equipped with technology and multimedia tools that can be used for music and video production, interactive programming, graphic design, and more.

The center is designed to be a safe, comfortable, and engaging space for teens. Membership is limited to youth ages 13 — 18. Members must complete an application and get signed permission from a parent or legal guardian in order to participate.

WHO DUN IT?: Mystery-lover Shelby Goddard will host the New Orleans Public Library’s monthly Who Dun It? Book Club from 4 pm to 5:30 pm Feb. 17 on Zoom.

February’s title is Chris Bohjalian’s “The Flight Attendant,” the murder-mystery sensation that was recently adapted into an HBO series of the same name, staring Kaley Couco.

The group will meet again on March 17 to discuss “The Last Mrs. Parrish” by Liv Constantine, a twist-filled thriller that follows the envious Amber Patterson as she befriends Daphne, a beautiful and kind socialite, in an attempt to become what she wants to be most: Daphne.

For details email sgoddard@nolalibrary.org or visit nolalibrary.org/events. New members are always welcome.

“Drive Your Plow Over The Bones of the Dead,” and “The Last Mrs. Parrish” are available through the library in print, e-book, and audiobook form. Reserve a copy at catalog.nolalibrary.org or by downloading the NOLALibrary app.
