In 2007, the Foundation created and sponsored the Teen Program in order to enhance and expand how the libraries were connecting with teens. By actively engaging the teens in the library, deeply-rooted connections are being made that will ensure their future engagement in literacy and libraries.
The impact of the Teen Program is staggering:
And the great news is:
The Teen Program is now implemented across the Sno-Isle Libraries District. Activities, programs, events, study zones, and homework help are available in all 21 community libraries. The Foundation continues to provide support for the Teen Program with technical equipment, trained staff and incentives for summer reading and other special events.
