More Color, New Seating in Teen Area

On Sunday, April 10, two Teen Think Tank members Josh and Ella, and their father Jon Hunt, and I painted the long wall that faces the Young Adult L to Z fiction, with Cupid's Dart purple. This is the same shade of purple that was painted 3 years ago by Teen Think Tank members and I on the Young Adult area's window wall. Also, in the teen area, Jon Hunt and his daughter Ella took on the difficult task of painting the slanted triangle ceiling drop downs with Squish Squash yellow. The yellow has warmed up the area while the purple color will give a visual cue that the Young Adult fiction collection continues down that wall. The purple paint will also connect and increase the gallery space available for teen art displays with the addition of the hanging systems on that wall that were purchased last summer.

The teen area now has a new, cozy, comfortable booth with a lamp, and a new colorful area rug.  These additions to the teen area were purchased thanks to a recent donation to the Library that was given in memory of Rosella Coughlin. The booth, in the short time since it arrived, has become a favorite place for teens in the library. There have been orders for fries and a soda, but all that could be served was Dewey 641-642.  Please stop by the teen area to see the new seating and colorful changes.
