Greenwood Library teen room getting revamp

The teen room at a local library is getting an overhaul, including offering more weekend and evening events.

Greenwood Public Library now has a teen room called the TeenHQ.

With the middle school no longer next door to the library, students have a more difficult time coming to the library to hang out after school, according to a news release from the library.

TeenHQ is accessible during library hours, and all ages are welcome to browse the teen, manga and graphic novel collections. Teen services staff also will offer opportunities for teens to explore the world around them, build new skills and socialize with friends. Programs will be hosted in the evening and weekends to accommodate busy school schedules.

Teens will also be getting their own time in the space with The Hangout program, from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Teen services staff will be available for supervision, book recommendations, homework help and game playing  during The Hangout hours.
