new teen section at Central

The new teen section in the Central is cool. It has lots of space, computers, tables, and the design is pretty cool. But, I don't think I will be going there very often anymore, because there is only one shelf of books! All of the fiction books are being kept in a big back room that is locked. How are kids supposed to read if they can't browse the shelves for something interesting? I think the entire children's section is too empty, and the books need to be open for people to browse and look for. When I come into a library, I don't know what I want to read, instead I simply look on the shelves for something interesting. With the new teen section, I can't do that.

not that big of a fan

Having a teen webpage is a great idea, but this page doesn't seem like much of a teen webpage, honestly. The design needs an update so that it doesn't look like something my grandmother designed, and the things posted on here need to attract teens to the library, not inform them of what has already transpired. Teenagers aren't going to check a site that tells them what has already taken place. That isn't their thing. The blog needs some work.

HELP!

This is super cool. I'm still a teen-ager, but I don't have homework like most kids my age. That's because I'm going for my GED. I was wondering if you know are there any good places on-line to help someone like me?
