Teens asked for input on new library

Scituate Town Library is creating a Teen Advisory Board to enable young people to offer suggestions on what the new library should look like and do. The first meeting will take place at the library on March 25 from 6 to 7 p.m., and according to Teen Services Librarian Dina Brasseur, the group will probably meet monthly to discuss visions for the space, library programming, and library purchases. Participation can also earn teens community service hours, a necessity if they want to go to prom, Brasseur said. “I would like to give them an overview of what we think the space will look like right now,” Brasseur said of the meetings. “The new library is in the early planning stages, and we don’t even have a definite picture of what the new space will look like, but I want to give them an overview . . . and get some input from there.” Scituate residents last year approved funding for a $12 million library expansion and renovation, with $5 million of the total funded through a grant.
