Libraries are cool ...

''The library is a great place to socialize," said Sonia Booth, 17, a member of the board. Wow!! What's this. A teenager wants to hang out in the Library??!! "The shopping malls teem with them after school, and the movie theater is their usual Friday night hangout." But the Library??!! Yes according to this article from the news site. And congratulations to the Librarian. The article continues "Vicki Solomon wanted to create an environment where teenagers could feel they were doing something a little more constructive, or just relax and enjoy reading.

So she started a teen advisory board to help the Cambridge Public Library become that haven."
