The Hideout! Just for Teens!

Teens will rule in their new YA area, "The Hideout".  In addition to YA books and books on CD there will be computers and tables for teens to spread out and work on projects. 

New to the Harris County Public Library system will be a Teen Media room with gaming consoles - PS3s and a WII - and 4 HDTVs on which to play these games!  Oh my!  This is going to be so exciting!
