Video: Kahlen Loves Reading

Kahlen is a 9th grader, and she really loves reading. She says that “it’s fun to be able to dive into a whole new world”

While some of the books she reads aren’t necessarily realistic, she still likes to imagine herself experiencing what the characters are experiencing. What would she do in a similar situation? Would she make the same choices as the character in the book?

There are two things she would add to the library experience:

  • A social space for discussing books with other people.
  • A dedicated space for teens. She has fond memories of coming to the library when she was younger for various events, but the current library doesn’t have a great space for kids her age.
