About Level 4
Our teen-only section features areas for quiet study, group study/projects/activities, food/snacks, and gaming and other noisier activities. The flow of space ensures the needs and preferences of the teens, whether it is quiet personal time, group collaboration, or just plain fun, are accommodated. Along with books, DVDs, and audio books geared to teen readers, Level 4 has 10 computer stations and a gaming section for Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Future plans for programming include gaming, crafts, college-prep, technology, Internet safety, and cooking.
The décor includes fun furniture, neon-like lighting, colorful paint and carpet, and lockers where personal belongings can be safely stored. The snack area is reminiscent of a soda shop with booths and high tables and stools.
Located on the Main Library's fourth floor, teens aged 13-19 years are allowed extended access Level 4. Parents and younger children have access to materials and computers in the third floor Youth Services section.
