Willmar Public Library inaugurates new designated space designed just for teens

Email

WILLMAR -- Shhh! Teens only, please. Comfy armchairs, a colorful rug, tables by the window and shelves laden with young-adult books mark a new venture by the Willmar Public Library -- a space set aside just for teens.

By giving adolescents a place of their own, library officials hope to encourage this sometimes-overlooked age group to feel at home in the library and foster a long-lasting love of reading and libraries.
