"Beyond the formative effects of reading on the individuals composing society, the fact that they have read the same books gives them experiences and ideas in common. These constitute a kind of shorthand of ideas which helps make communication quicker and more efficient. That is what we mean when we say figuratively of another person, We speak the same language."

—Charles Scribner, Jr.

 

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.
