The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has declared Thursday, September 15, 2016 as “Power Up at Your Library Day," and we are inviting all Texas libraries to participate in this initiative to help promote technology, innovation, and creativity in their communities. This is an opportunity for school, academic, public, and special libraries to showcase their diverse range of programs and offerings, including activities supporting STEAM-based learning, business and entrepreneurship, workforce development, and much more.
