Last Friday, the Library held its second annual Teen Pride program at Northside. The plan is to alternate between the Northside and Central Park locations. Santa Clara is a diverse community and it was very gratifying to offer a program that recognizes that diversity. The program was intended as a safe space for all teens to hang out, eat an enormous amount of pizza (!), do crafts, and socialize. Approximately 50 teens, including regular Northside and Central patrons, ones that just come out during summer, and some who had never ever been to a library program, came together. There was lots of giggling, crafts, and general merriment. You can see what a great time they had from the photos attached. It was truly an awesome program!
