BC-ND--Library Targets Teenagers/147
Bismarck library creates space dedicated for teenagers
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Bismarck Public Library is creating an area that is just for teenagers.
The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/2cy2FiE ) reports the area will allow teenagers to socialize, do homework and try new technology. Construction for the new space began this summer and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Library director Christine Kujawa says about 600 teenagers responded to a survey asking about the programs, technology, furniture and materials they wanted to see at the library. She says the plans for the new center were based on the feedback from the teenagers.
A total of $350,000 was raised for the project. A new fireplace and windows have already been installed. New furniture, including booths, desks and lounge chairs, will be added later. Student art will also be displayed.
