Teen Space at KPL- "Cool Games" coming
At KPL, we met Kevin King, Teen Librarian, who is dedicated full-time to Teen Services, which is under the Youth Services umbrella. Their teen services include:
-Active Teen Advisory Board of 30 kids meeting bi-monthly to recommend, “What’s Hot”
-Cool program that allows teens to burn their own music CD and create cover art
-Goal of area is to create a “safe haven” for teens where they are encouraged to just be themselves!
-While food is banned from the library, covered drink containers are allowed
-Soon to acquire stand alone game ("cool games") computers for use in Teen area -- Kevin said they would be "good games" and the machines would be custom built.
Ahhh.... Would a custom built game PC rock your world? yes. At the library? Sure....Cool good games are a great addition to a teen space. I wish them well with this project!
