Teen Zone Updates - 2014
Posted by Alison Schwartz on Wed, 01/22/2014 - 11:03am

As I reach my sixth month as your Teen Librarian at Wilmington Memorial Library, I'm proud to say I've made a lot of positive changes to your Teen Zone!

What's new?

- Comfy lime green saucer chairs for you to lounge in while enjoying a book or magazine
- Awesome comic book wall decals, with action words like 'Kaboom' and 'Fwoooosh' that liven up the area
- A special section for 'Series' books - like "Pretty Little Liars" and "Clique"-  makes them much easier to find
- New tables and chairs - perfect for studying or hanging out
- A laptop bar against the wall, which gives you more space to move around

Attention Teens:

Do you need community service hours? Drop in today (11/8) from 3-4:30pm to make cards or write letters for those deployed overseas in honor of Veterans Day. They will be mailed to our nation's heroes through Operation Write Home (operationwritehome.org).

Did you know? There is now an iPad available just for teens to borrow for up to the two hours in the Teen Zone. It's loaded with the hottest games!

Newsflash! There is now a True Stories section in Teen Non-fiction - for those of you who enjoy a hearty serving of reality. We have books about ghastly crimes, haunted happenings, tales of survival, and even a book about fairies (true story?!). Look above the Biographies or ask your friendly librarian for assistance (or recommendations!)
