Opinion : If it takes Guitar Hero to bring kids to the library, let’s jam

Opinion – “Teenagers ought to feel welcome in our public libraries, which remain — even in the digital age — among our most hallowed public spaces. And anything that brings them into the fold and into close contact with the wealth of resources at the library is worthwhile and downright important to the democracy.”

Of course, I disagree, but everyone is allowed to have an opinion. That’s why they call them opinions.

Update – What about Ballroom dancing for the kids?

    Exactly what part of the phrase do you disagree with or are you simply being flip?

    I think Ballroom dancing for teens is awesome. I think video game programs for teens are also awesome.

    Just because the library is in the business of information doesn’t mean that information is all we can provide for people.

    Does your town have a community center? Not all of them do and the library can fill a social void that exists for teens, children and adults.

    My library has concerts for adults all the time. Is that more important than video games? As a gamer, that appeals to me much more.
