Teen Room at Winston Co. Library Makes a Splash

Officials made a site visit to the Winston County Library on Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 to learn more about the operation of programs such as the "Teen Room".

Timothy Owens, Sr.Program Advisor with the Institute of Museums and Libraries (Washington, D.C.) along with area and state library officials  made five site visits to libraries which received grant money through his organization within the last five years to build a Teen Room at their library.  He makes these site visits once every five years.  The purpose of the visits is to see how the grant money was used and how it has impacted the community and the library.  In addition to visiting the Winston County Library, Mr. Owens also visited Collins, Waynesboro, West Point and Columbus libraries.
