We are committed to helping teens in underserved communities who may not have WiFi or access to a device attend ACTIVATE. During this time of COVID-19, library reopening protocols are shifting from week to week. We cannot guarantee that every Host Library will be open to the public. However, we encourage teens who want to attend ACTIVATE but need access to WiFi and/or a device to contact one of the Host Libraries and speak to a Teen Librarian who can register you for ACTIVATE over the phone and put you on a list.
During the week of ACTIVATE, we will reach out to teens who have requested access to WiFi and/or a device in an attempt to coordinate a way for them to attend ACTIVATE. We will also post updates to this page and our social media accounts as to each library’s opening status prior to the convention. Some libraries may have computers available in the building reserved for teens on the day of the convention. Other libraries may be able to provide free WiFi, access to hotspots, and/or access to devices for checkout.
