Summer Youth Corps boosts library programs in Coos Bay

Abhi Sharma

Those of us not working or attending school over the summer have a little extra time on our hands... for things like reading. Libraries around the country encourage people to pick up books, and the Coos Bay Public Library has several programs for readers of different ages.

They include reading challenges that can net prizes for young people who read lots of books. And the CBPL is also bringing on a squadron of teens for its Summer Youth Corps Program, to help guide other reading programs.

Jennifer Knight is the Youth Services Librarian and our guest with the answers to our questions.
