Feedback from teens!
I think books are cool! - Kathy
This Library Is Great. I Like your Books A lot. Even my dad Reads them. .Mostly I like the books A to Z Mystery the most. – Heidi
I think it’s [the library] fun and I like to come here because you get to get on the computer and check out books, movies and some more. It’s not about the computer all the time and dictionary you know. The library I like the most is Vermont square so that is all I have to say; bye bye. - Jamiah
I think this website is really great for every teen who needs help and who like to read. its very fun!! - Susana
This site is really good!!! All the activities on both the website and at the libraries are great as well. I hope next summer it's like this too. – Nyallah
I think that teen web is cooooool u get lots of help:). – Maria
This is a great club where you could express all your reading passion of the books and it [library] is a great place were teens could dream big in their minds. My husband and I
both agree even if we are not in the club. Keep it up with the club of books yeah!!!!!
- Martha & Ricardo
I love Hot Topic! It’s the bomb – Corrissa
The Central Library is filled with knowledge. This library is cool - Lizet
This is the best library ever because there are great books to look at and movies. Kids Path has the best games you can ever imagine, but I don’t have a library card and that’s no fair... I really hope to get one soon........ – Lariesha
I think the library should get more anime and Manga, also Tokyopop books and novels. I love reading those kinds of books. – Daysi
I think that there should be more games in the Teen Reading Club! That would make it a whole lot more fun! Thanks for making it fun already! - Amy
Bring on the werewolf and vampire books! yeah, WHOO-HOO! I love the library. A lot of kids at my school don't care about books, and I’m such a nerd, I put 10 holds for books on my library card. Books take me into a new, wonderful, imagined, but fully realistic world were I lose myself in constantly. – Loreli
I think the teen web is great. It give off a lot of information on teen life and how they act. I am glad I was introduce to this web site. – Britney
I think that the Porter Ranch Branch library should have a teen section. They already have the “young adult” but its kind of boring with just wooden table and chairs. They should have a fundraiser and buy like a couch and a big beanie bag pillows so we could sit. i would also donate like some really cool pillows for the couch:) I also want to say that the librarian Beth Hardy is awesome!! - Princess
I think this teen web should be better. The reason is that because this web site is not very popular actually I even bet that you don't even read it since it's so boring. Kids prefer a more exciting thing, thank-you! - Esmeralda
I think you guys at the Venice Library should like help the kids more than the teens like you guys should make us wanna be at the library more because I like thinking about the library but when am in it like it’s hard to get a card and use correctly the computer and well people around should help us because a lot of teens need help on homework but its hard so am just telling you guys what will make the library better :) - Nicole
WELL ITS OKAY NOT SO BAD...LOVE THIS MAR VISTA LIBARY CAN COME AND DO MY HOMEWORK TYPE ESSAYS AND THEY WILL HELP ME IF I NEED THEIR HELP - Miriam

I THINK THE LIBRARY IS AWESOME CUS U COULD GO ON THE COMPUTERS AND IT HAS LOTS OF BOOKS – Chelsey
This library is cool because you get to research lots of things for example books. Also you get to check out DVDs. But you sure wouldn't want to owe $ for real. This is my favorite library to come. Here is where I kick it with my friends. Thank you for all of your attention. -- Grecia
This library has a lot of books that i like. That motivates me to read more thank you. – Miriam
Canoga Park is the BEST library ever! NO KIDDING! The Librarians are all nice. Everyone is calm, and all of the S.T.A.F.F are very helpful! :) Keep up the good work you guy! -- Ekern Jade
I think that that the teen reading club really inspires me to read more and learn about the library – Anonymous
My suggestion/comment about the teen web is that it is kool and rocking but u gotta make the codex game longer for occasions in which people can’t go on the internet only the home page...please make the game longer. - Anonymous
Hi nice teen web ya! You guys are nice, you rock! -- Maria
The library is a cool place to do your homework ;] - Vanessa
I think that this space [Teen Web] is so cool cause you can express your self... you can find help and talk to someone when you need it....... anonymous
This library should have a chess club on Saturday at 12:00 pm to 4:pm - Rodriguez
I love porter ranch library! - Pretty Lyn
I think that this web is very cool that it teaches what the teens have to do when they get to high school - Paula
I like this site, but i think the library should be open at an earlier time. -- Sara
Well I don’t have much to say just that LAPL rocks!! I love to read a lot, so I come to kick it at LAPL. There is just no better place. I think that teen web is cool. And I also think i said a little to much, well latz!=-) - Roxy

Hi! I think your web site is so cool. – Jamie
I THINK THE LIBRARY IS COOL – GRISELDA
I think this site is cool. – Anonymous
I love the library -- Noreen
I think the Libraries should open more early!!! – Anonymous
You should get most of the books that the teens suggest because they're the
ones reading them. I want to read the Calypso Chronicles but can't find all of them in the library. Please get them. - Beth
I would love to go to the beach or Mexico for me. It surprises me that you guys are really interested in what we do or like. So THANK YOU GUYS -- Diana
I think there should be more movies for us teens and pre-teens! -- Ruby
The library is cool, yeah the comps. and books, CD"s etc. But they could have more places to use the comps. without having to need a library card. People over ages of 11 should be able to use kid path comps. if no other child of the required age is present, due to the fact that most one hour comps. are always used and/or are few of them. Most computers are not being able to be used because children of smaller ages pound on the keyboards or using pencils to write all over the screen. I have noticed there are sometimes not a wide variety of books in one particular section. – Enyel
I would like to give my appreciation to the staff and staff members of the Central Library because without there help and support I wouldn't be able to find a book I was looking for or be able to surf the net for homework and I wouldn't be able to print papers out cause I don't have a computer at home. My name s Melissa I'm a straight a student thanks to Los Angeles public library! Thank you...and keep on helping other kids like me...I really appreciate it! -- Melissa
First of all, I love the new Harbor-gateway library; its way more high tech than the old one. Finally, my local library is back! Also, for anyone into a chick book, look into Sophie Kinsella's series Confession of a Shopaholic. Its my first time in this site, and I'm definitely coming back! - Joana
You need to go get more movies like "Date Movie" that a movie I would to see so if you would take my suggestion and get that movie then I would gladly appreciate it a lot k so I’m having a very good time writing that ‘s why I can’t stop writing so have you seen any good even maybe stomp the yard to ok [movie?] – anonymous.
For a fact I didn't even know what black history was until I saw “That so Raven”, I understand that it thanks all the people that helped change the unfair things that was happening to all the black slaves for example: Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman and so on. Anyways there is still people discriminate African Americans but it is less than it would be than if all those people wouldn’t changed anything. THAT IS WHAT I THINK. -- Emilia
I think people at this library are really cool. -- Cynthi
I think reading is fun because it takes up time but your not wasting time I love reading and I think every 1 should
Lemony Snicket books are the best because the mystery is amazing actually if anyone of you guyz and girlz feel depressed about anything they really can cheer you up because you see all the UNFORTUNATE thingz that happen to them and you would wish they never had that problem. -- Susana
Hello I don’t know what I’m doing but I think my book that I’m reading called Dreadlocks is a great book!!!!! – Alfred
I like the site....that's all I had to say. – Vicky
I love this sight but what I don’t like is you can’t play games. I think that they should let us play games otherwise i like the homework helper. THANK YOOUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Tyleshia
I love this web site but it has stuff about living above the influence, school, help with personal stuff that no one else can see but you. It should help you with homework more and even what to do about parents and how they influence your life style you know stuff like how to turn down peer presser to do bad in school [and] how much stress we ave(most of it from our parents on school work. I think this site should have more things about that kind of stuff. I still love the site though!!! – Tony
I liked your site. -- Jim
Yeah! I really enjoy this library, >;] - Michelle
I think that they (staff) should have more activities like the fear factor!!!!!!!!!!!! – Hillary.
I highly recommend Eragon by Christopher Paolini. It's filled action adventure and a hint of romance. Recently this book has been made into a movie. I love this book!!!!
This website is awesome! I work a public library in AR and we were Re-designing our teen page and we might use some similar things from your site. Don’t worry, we won’t copy your stuff.. Just use it as a reference site. Thanks for the influence.
I think that books are the greatest thing to ever happen. When I get a new book it is the greatest thing. I love to imagine myself in the stories and watch the stories play out. It's better than watching T.V. because you have to use your imagination to really make it work.
I think that coming to the library is fun because u get to use any computer u want. There’s like a limit but at least u check or look at whatever u want even check out your email address or confirm a first class flight to even a job of any kind.
Chicken Soups for the Girl’s Soul - I think that this is a really good book for girls who need help surviving all sorts of obstacles.
- Someone from the Northridge Branch
More heavy metal on the CD racks plz. J-Pop and J-rock isn't bad either.
I also think that we should have a place to chat with other teens.
I think you need more books on tape of R.L. Stine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I look that author he is a great author those books give me GOOSEBUMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please make my Suggest a real thing!!!!! :)
I think reading is fun once you know what you're interested in. For example, I'm interested in books that have to do with vampires and because I like reading vampire books I could last hours and hours reading vampire books.
Hi my name is Sandy and I would like to suggest that this library get more computers. Also more movies and CDs.
I love HOT TOPIC!!!!!!
I THINK THAT WE SHOULD GET MORE THAN 2 HOURS PER CARD [for computer usage] CAUSE 2 JUST ISN'T ENOUGH DON'T YA THINK?
- ASHLEY AKA TROUBLEZ
I THINK THIS [Teen Web] IS GREAT BUT WE SHOULD HAVE A PLACE TO CHAT WITH OTHER TEENS TO DON'T YOU THINK?
- ASHLEY AKA TROUBLEZ
Long live Amelia Atwater-Rhodes! Her books are unbelievably awesome! They are MUST HAVE NOW!
My name is Beatris but they call me bubbles, I think it's a great opportunity for anyone to use this web, even I think that I could spend my time expanding my thoughts. Well, all I have to say is bye.
- Beatris A.K.A. bubbles
I really like that the LAPL offers the STUDENT SMART program. I think that it is a great program. I was wondering how the locations are chose. I was hoping that maybe there could be a way for more locations to provide this program, locations within a radius of high school, I now that's a lot of area to cover, but it would really be helpful. I didn't see testing locations near University High nor Venice High. I attend University High and we have some great programs at my school, but I am also trying to get all the help that I can. This is my Junior year and I have plan to take both the SAT and the ACT test. --
I like this library...it’s pretty kool....but I think they should let us go
on the 1 hr computers even if we don’t have a library card!!!! 4 real dough...
