This is the fourth year of Teen Services at the Shawano City-County Library, a program for ages 12 to 18.
The library’s young adult librarian, Cathy Pescinski, tries to show the teens the benefits of going to the library.
“We want them to come to think of the library as a cool place,” Pescinski said.
She hosts the teens from 3-5 p.m. Tuesdays on the main floor of the library.
They usually do crafts on the first Tuesday of the month, or sometimes they play ping pong or with Legos.
The next Tuesday they play the “Minute to Win It” game.
On the third Tuesday, the Shawano Public Library Advisory Teens provide their input on ordering books, displays and programming.
One of the things they might do on the fourth Tuesday is utilize the electronic bulletin board at pinterest.com. Pescinski said the website is a popular with the kids who can post items of interest to find them quickly. It is also helpful to Pescinski.
