Bigger library would be more teen friendly

Dear Editor:

I feel the expansion of the library would benefit the community, particularly the high school students.Teens these days love to read and enjoy experiencing new programs. Advantages include: small areas for tutoring space, study areas, upgrade to computer programs, and provide greater connectivity to the Galena Plaza, allowing us take better advantage of the beautiful outdoor space. This will compel more teens to go to the public library.

Small areas and study spaces will help teenagers to achieve high-quality grades that colleges will favor. Also, this will benefit the students in a variety of ways. With more space comes more opportunities to learn in addition to recreation and interacting with the community.

Expanding the library would make me pleased as a strong member because I spend most of my valued time here. When I come to the library I feel like I can connect with friends, accomplish school related goals, and enjoy fun events. Making the library bigger would give space for teens to meet with friends in a safe and healthy environment. So in conclusion, expanding the library would be extremely beneficial to all areas needed.
