Teen Services Booming At Randolph

We talk about it often - the many teens who are visiting our libraries - what to do with them. The Randolph County Public Library "Teen Corner" project addressed that need. The Teen Corner is the area of the Asheboro Public Library that houses the library's collection of books, magazines, and other materials for teens. Over the past year, the library embarked on a multifaceted strategy to draw teens into libraries countywide. Not only did they receive the Excellence in Library Service to Young Adult Award from YALSA, but they have seen a 61% increase in teens using the library. Check out their teen web site
