Conclusion: Yes, tweens should have their own spaces

1436896367422Just as tweens are transitioning from childhood into young adulthood, libraries can provide a space and resources for youth to transition from the library’s children’s area to the teen area. Tween spaces can help to increase the library’s circulation of tween materials, ensure that young people don’t stop coming to the library because they don’t feel comfortable in the children’s or teen area, provide tweens with an opportunity to develop leadership skills by participating in a Tween Advisory Board, and give tweens a special space to read, relax, learn, and create!¬†Promote lifelong library users by creating this important space just for tweens!
