Screen-Agers: Growing Up In the Digital Age – Thursday, Sept. 28th at 7pm

Award-winning SCREENAGERS probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director’s own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through surprising insights from authors and brain scientists solutions emerge on how we can empower kids to best navigate the digital world.

Join us on Thursday, September 28th for a viewing of SCREENAGERS. This film directed by Delaney Ruston, M.D. is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help them minimize harmful effects and find balance.

There is not cost for this event; however advanced registration is required as space is limited. Stop at the upstairs or downstairs desk in the library to register.
