The Santa Monica Public Library presents the workshop series Teens, Tweens and Their Digital Lives each Wednesday in March. Join us at the Pico Branch Annex, 2201 Pico Blvd., from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., for this enlightening series aimed at parents and caregivers of kids ages 11 and up. Join us for any or all of the workshops:

March 23: Who Are You on Social Media?

March 30: Who Are You Talking to Online?

Learn tips and tools for guiding middle and high school students through digital challenges, from the complexities of social media to navigating online drama. This 4-week workshop series uses a Common Sense Media curriculum to help parents understand the digital lives of their children. Light refreshments will be served, and attendees receive free books on the topics discussed.
