San Marco Branch Library's New Teen Space

March 21, 2013 

Council Member Lori Boyer was on hand to celebrate the opening of the new Teen Scene space at the San Marco Branch Library.  As part of the library's priority of ensuring education success for youth, the Teen Scene will provide a safe, inviting place for teens to gather after school to do homework , use laptops, or just relax and enjoy reading.  The teen space was made possible by a gift from the trust of the late Gilbert Clark, a longtime resident of Jacksonville. 

Niched out of existing space in the library, the Teen Scene was created using transparent mesh panels.  It will house four computer stations for laptops, modular seating and lounge chairs, an ottoman, a bar-height work table with comfortable stools and outlets to charge laptops.  The color palette includes bright, geometric prints that appeal to teens and complement the library's interior.
