Teens and Libraries

Okay, so we have many teens and 'tweens (don't you hate that term?) at our branch, especially after school. And that's good! True, most of the them go immediately to the computers and/or the dvd's but, they're in the library! While waiting for their computer time many just sit around not knowing what to do. (?) So I keep a revolving selection of nonfiction books on the table to, hopefully, entice them. When you are an avid reader you can't believe that someone else really doesn't want to read. Yesterday a young man came in to pick up a book (!) he's requested- the latest in a fantasy series. He was so excited to have that book that he wanted to open it and begin reading right there! I know the feeling! There are young readers out there...
