Re: Teen Space and Gaming Policies  Tamiko Treadwell

I see your point, but I think it's a good idea to leave it open for
everyone when school is in session, but when it isn't, it should be
reserved for teens. Patrons may not understand why they cannot sit
there when school is in session.

We have a teen section and the library manager wants it open to
As for gaming, we have a meeting room that we use for the video game

My library is currently in the process of renovating our library and we
are finally getting a Teen Zone. We are having conflicting viewpoints
on usage in the teen space. I think it should be for teens only. Other
members of our staff think we should allow others in the space when
school is in session. I could use some feedback from other libraries
about their policies. What works and what doesn’t. Also, we are finally
getting gaming going at our library. Could anyone share how they do
gaming, types of programs, policies, what works and what doesn’t? I
would really appreciate some feedback.
