GEPL Teens: A Finals Story

Teens Blog Orange BannerOnce upon a time, finals were looming for the hard working high school students of Glen Ellyn.  At first, they made light of the situation, cracking sarcastic jokes.

But all of a sudden, panic began to set in!

Despite the panic, students found studying was nearly impossible.  They wanted to do well, but pressing matters like the next Dr. Who episode, an important text message from a friend, trips to get ice cream, beautiful weather and more kept popping up!

The students were at a loss, when suddenly, they remembered – the library!  The Glen Ellyn Public Library, committed to high school students and pizza, was on a mission to help.  With delicious eats from Barone’s, caffeine all night long, and extended hours for cramming, studying became almost bearable!
