Help Us Raise Awareness About the Importance of Library Services for Teens!

Please support our new online campaign we created via Thunderclap in support of library services for teens!

Our goal is to increase awareness about the importance of library services for teens and its cruciaol role in helping them develop critical literacy skills.

How Thunderclap works:

Check out these 10 easy ways 2 take action! http://ow.ly/pBXXy

Please join and support our Thunderclap -- it's easy as 1-2-3!
