"Perhaps a modern society can remain stable only by eliminating adolescence, by giving its young, from the age of ten, the skills, responsibilities, and rewards of grownups, and opportunites for action in all spheres of life. Adolescence should be a time of useful action, while book learning and scholarship should be a preoccupation of adults."

—Eric Hoffer (1902-83) American philosopher

 

The Teen Collection at the Library

Document Actions

The Collection's new home is upstairs in front of the magazine reading area.

The Young Adult collection at the Carbondale Public Library is over 9 years old, and is called the Teen collection. Many hundreds of books, both fiction and non-fiction have been purchased for teenagers.

Non-fiction books are shelved along with the adult non- fiction collection. The green and white "TEEN" spine labels make it easier to pick them out.

The new Teen fiction shelves are upstairs near the magazine and graphic novels area.
