The Main Branch library is such a gem. It’s magical in the sense that no matter what phase of life you’re in, it provides you with what you need. Many of our teens are experiencing a lot and during their time here, they simply have to exist with their peers. They get peace of mind.
I think librarians have a special place with teens because we have the opportunity to make an impact when they least expect it, as we don’t carry formal roles in their lives. I think this is a really cool place for them and this is how I make my living, giving encouragement and understanding.
