Brodart Supplies & Furnishings is now offering a product line of gaming supplies and furniture, along with teen-friendly décor to help make public libraries more attractive to teens.
Libraries are beginning to think outside of the box when it comes to enticing teens through their doors. Many public libraries are adopting programs and events to attract teens, including video game nights, movie nights, teen book clubs, and even undergoing major renovations to create an inviting space for teens to hang out or a full-fledged sound-proof gaming nook. Even the American Library Association (ALA) instituted a National Gaming Day for libraries across the country. Since the gaming craze began, some libraries have seen as much as a 25% increase in teen attendance. These libraries are hoping that by forging positive relationships with teens now, via gaming and teen lounge areas, they will continue to see teens visiting their libraries for more than just technology.
Brodart Supplies & Furnishings has rose to the occasion and introduced products to help libraries attract teens including gaming stations and chairs, contemporary pattern rugs, wall murals, and comfortable chairs. Brodart has the supplies and furniture to help any library create an inviting space for teens.
