The Connect Your Summer asked for feedback!
Hi, my name is Meghan. I'm a 17 year old senior at the PCEP. I love reading more than anything else and libraries are one of my favorite places to be. I appreciate the connect your summer program becuase it's brigning together the community and showing kids,teens, and adults that's there's more to the surrounding areas then what any of us know. However I am reaaly saddened that this has taken place of the summer reading programs. I understand that my perspective is not that of an average teen only because know how much work goes in to summer reading (I was on CPL TAB and am still on PDL TAB). I kid you not when I say I look forward to summer reading all year round. Granted I'm just one voice and I'm sure a lot of my peers dont share my enthusisasm but I think some do! I miss book clubs, teen advisery board, and now the summer book logs you turn in for prizes. I get that this is a new era of computers and less hand written logs but now I see no reason to really go in to the libraires other than to grab a book. The economy must be a factor as well but I just wanted to let whoever reads this know there are deffinetly still people under the age of 18 and over the age of 10 that enjoy doing summer activites. Whew, I'm sorry to go on and on but I've kept that in for awhile haha.
Ps.I will 100% keep supporting the library in whatever it does.
