Teens Talk: Elyse says we don’t have to be hip or cool
Do you use your local library? Why or why not? How often?
What would you like a teen space in a library to look like? What should it include? What should it avoid?
Do you read for pleasure? Why or why not? What types of books do you like to read? How do you find the books you want to read?
What is your process for selecting a book to read?
Have you ever attended a library program for teens? Why or why not? What types of programs would you be interested in going to a library for?
How do you find things of interest to you? How can libraries let you know about their services and programs? What is the best way for you to find about things happening in your local community?
Do you think libraries are relevant in today’s world? Why or why not? If not, how can they become more relevant to teens like you?
Tell us a little bit about yourself, generically: What part of the US do you live in? How do you spend your time outside of school? What types of social media do you use to learn about new trends, etc?
