The San Antonio Public Library and Councilman Roberto Treviño celebrated the grand opening of the new Teen Library at Central today.  The new 6,000 square foot space, located on the third floor of the Central Library, offers teens out-of-school learning opportunities to engage in a variety of cutting-edge activities. These experiences, led by professional library staff, will develop collaborative skills that allow peer-to-peer interaction in a safe, enjoyable space and prepare teens for college and employment.
