In the library world, October is TeenTober to raise awareness of the teen services provided by public and school libraries. Below are some interesting statistics provided by the American Library Association.

Students make almost 1.3 billion visits to school library media centers during the school year, the same as attendance at movie theaters in 2014, or four times as many visitors to national parks. What will you discover at your school library?

97% of public libraries offer a dedicated section for teen books and materials. Teens, visit myMCPL.org, and pick up a book today. Don’t know what to choose? Just ask a library staff member for help or check out these booklists made just for teens!

82% of public libraries offer after-school programs or tutoring to teens. Never attended one? Check out myMCPL.org‘s teen programs during #TeenTober this month!

And, what is happening at the LSN LMC? We have real books, we have ebooks, we have magazines, we have Book Club, we have MCPL access, we have databases, we have help videos, we’re on Twitter, on Instagram, on YouTube. We have it ALL!!!!!
