Teens have run into checking out books and then racking up late fees because they couldn’t get back to the public library in time to return the books. The most important thing is that these kids are reading.
Mykal Banta, the interim library director, is also enthusiastic about the project. “Access to free books is crucial,” Banta said. “It’s also great to be working with the Woman’s Club of Delray Beach, who started our library 104 years ago.”
The Teen Center is located at 505 SE Fifth Avenue in Delray Beach. Contact the Teen Center at 561-243-7158 for more information on the mini library.
