Teens, the library wants you. The Washington County Free Library's downtown Hagerstown branch is concerned with a smaller number of teen patrons. In an effort to attract teens, the library has created a teen loft separate from the main floor. "In an attempt to get the teen generation back into reading, the Hagerstown public library has built a room specifically for teens on our partial second floor," said Lisa Key, circulation supervisor at the Hagerstown library. The teen loft is actually more of a balcony-type room that looks out over the entire library, with its mix between modern interior design and a retro/late '80s look.
