The ‘Lanesboro Public Library Teen Space & Recharge Station’ invites Teens by providing a safe space to spend time on both educational and social aspects of growing up in the 21st Century in Rural Southeastern Minnesota.  All teens will have access to a common space during ‘open’ library hours to meet friends, read books, and/or recharge their electronic devices.  During the cold harsh winters in MN, the Teen Space will be a welcoming WARMING HOUSE and in the heat of an MN summer, the Teen Space will be a great place to COOL DOWN.  

The ultimate goal is to INCREASE teen traffic into the Lanesboro Public Library building  & invite both local and our entire Fillmore County Area.  A quote  taken directly from the ALA (American Library Association), see below:

‘Looking at teen facilities design in a new light, letting go of antiquated ideas, re-evaluating traditional ways of doing business, and emphasizing patron needs and wants are essential first steps in moving forward in the world of 21st-century libraries.’ 

          Quoted text from:

The number one goal is to provide a safe space where ALL ARE WELCOME no matter the age.  Teen spaces are few and far between, and in a rural town such as Lanesboro-there needs to be a space where teens can be & ‘hang out’ where they are ‘Seen’ and ‘Welcomed’ by adults in the community.  Collaboration outside of the school day benefits all!
