The library currently has only a small space dedicated to teens. Given our proximity to both the Middle School and High School, we aren't able to offer the space they need.
Noise is also an issue with our open floor plan. We plan to create an ample, relaxing space to support teen activities, while keeping the rest of the library reasonably quiet!
We also need more distraction free areas throughout the library where teens can focus on their studies after school.
Many teens come to the library to work on group projects for school. We want to have spaces they can use throughout the library, not only in the teen area.
Teens often need to work on projects in the library, but we also want them to enjoy a welcoming and relaxing space where they can be themselves.
We have a very active teen advisory group (TAB) ready to help make our teen services even better with appropriately sized space. They just need your help to get it done.
