When you picture groups of kids attending a program at the library, do you imagine young children gathered around a librarian at story time? Story times are popular and worthwhile and they are offered at each local branch.

But the national Young Adult Library Services Association, YALSA, seeks to spread the word that libraries are here for teens as well. YALSA created TeenTober, a month long celebration of the innovative activities that are offered all year to help teens learn new skills and fuel their passions.

Barbara Buckley is the branch manager of the Harbaugh-Thomas Library.
