San Lorenzo Library’s teens have been sharing their area with Adult Non-fiction for a very long time. Well, it’s time for a change! The last of the 900’s were recently shifted, and the teen area now exclusively holds the teen collection. Teen fiction, non-fiction, classics, cliffs notes, biographies, and graphic novels have all been rearranged. It might take a moment to get yourself oriented, but we think you’ll enjoy the change. There is even some extra space to display teen artwork. If you’re a teen and you’d like to contribute a piece of art to the teen area, stop by one of our Green Teen Art-a-thon events and create something. Tuesdays, June 17th and 24th at 2 p.m.
