Abstract
  • This study describes a survey of teens in Girl Scout, Boy Scout and Teen Advisory Board groups in Orange County, North Carolina. The study was conducted to determine key trends in teen library usage. Forty usable surveys were collected from three troops and one teen advisory board. The study found that all teens surveyed held library cards, most from a young age. While a review of the literature suggests a need for elaborate programming, teen participants used the library primarily to check out books or to read. Demographic factors in Orange County, NC, may account for these differences.
