Get Hacked: How We Survived a 24-Hour Teen Hackathon in the Library

What the heck is a hackathon? When a local high school computer club proposed the Cherry Hill Public Library as the site for their 24-hour hackathon, we asked ourselves the same question. Find out how we went from skeptical to supportive, what happened when over 100 teens stayed overnight, and why we think libraries can (and should) support hacker culture.
