Teen Testimonial-"The library is a great place for people of all ages, no matter what their interests are"

"The library is a great place for people of all ages, no matter what their interests are.  To me, the library is the place where I study and read for fun.  I get all of the books I need for school here; it's much more convenient than buying them and the teen section has editions of books with built-in study guides.  This is also where I get all of the books I read for fun.  The library has a great selection of books and I love coming here to look for new books to read.  I am a volunteer here. I do it not just to get community service hours, but also because I like this library and I want to help them out.  There is always work to be done here so they need all the help they can get.  This library also has lots of workshops for teens in the Community Room.  Some of them help with school and some of them are just for fun.  These events help teens coming to the library and they make it a fun place to be.  Anyone who wants to make kids these days read more should know that the best way to do that is to keep the library available to everyone and teen-friendly."
