What's your "third place"?
Librarians say they’re overwhelmed by teens each day because the young people don’t have enough “third places” (neither home nor school) where they’re welcome. Do you ever spend time in your neighborhood library after school? DO you see challenges like the ones described in Parade Classroom at your library? Do communities have a responsibility to create safe places for young people to gather before their parents get home from work? Do you have a favorite after school hang out?
