Diamond Bar students get new teen space at library

Diamond Bar students enjoy a great place to study as the Teen Space got a new look this summer at
the Diamond Bar Library. The uncomfortable chairs were replaced with
fun, multicolored mitt chairs, which fit this space like a glove, if
you’ll pardon the pun.

“Teens will be happy to see a refreshed Teen Space in the
library, which now offers funky and fun lounge chairs as well as
cafe-style seating, perfect for after-school small group studying,” said
Library Manager Jesse Lanz.

The new tables and stools also give teens a perfect place to
work on small class projects. A bold area rug defines the space and creates a
comfortable atmosphere.

The new furniture doubles the number of teens that can use the
Teen Space. It also gives them a number of ways to use their area.

A grand reopening party is planned for the start of the new school year.

The teen project was sponsored by the Diamond Bar Friends of
the Library with a matching grant from the County Library Foundation.

Every year, the foundation gives library support groups the
chance to apply for the grants, which are used for creative projects
like the teen space.

“All of us at the Diamond Bar Library would like to thank both
the Friends and the Library Foundation for funding this exciting
project, which will greatly benefit the hundreds of teens that use the
library each week,” said Lanz.
