Ribbon Cutting for the New Teen Room!

All local teens are invited to a ribbon cutting for the newly designed Teen Room at the Taos Public Library.

Ribbon cutting will take place on Wednesday, May 14th at 4:00 pm in the library’s Teen Room. Town of Taos Mayor, Dan Barrone will do the honors.

There will be a drawing for prizes for all teens in attendance. The Teen Room was created to help teens achieve a successful transition from childhood to adulthood by providing teens a space to learn and grow. Teens are invited to do homework, read books and magazines, get on the computer to check email or social network, or hang out with friends . Teen Services Librarian, Jeanelle Romo-Lucero “hopes to  encourage teens to become lifelong library users,” by giving them their own space to be creative and comfortable. All 1,400 books have new classification labels and new furniture was added. The plan is to have more events for teens throughout the year. The room will have its first event when the Teen Summer Reading program kicks off for its third summer June 20th.

Special edition………………………….May 2014…………written by Joanne Forman………..


     “We want to give the teens their own special place where they can not only read and use computers but also socialize. With the new technology, they need a place where they can see each other face to face. Social skills are just as important as technological.”

     So says Head Librarian Shirley Fernandez about the attractive new Teen Room at the Taos Public Library.
