The Lewis & Clark Library teen space is a great place to hang out for teens. Teens can converse with friends, find out what’s happening at the library, check out the "teen-centric" library materials, pick up a craft activity, and so much more!  Another thing a teen can do in the teen space is leave a book recommendation. There's a specially marked “Book Scouts” journal in which teens can write about  what they've been reading and recommend other teens read these books, too.  

Here are a few book suggestions from teens who’ve recently written in the journal:

Words on Fire 
by Jennifer Nielsen 

Set during the Russian occupation of the small European country of Lithuania, this historical fiction is, as all of Nielsen's books, amazingly poignant, and Anya's story of smuggling books as part of the revolution is particularly delightful for avid readers.
