Only a few feet from the top of the wide, granite staircase, The Loft is 1600 square feet made up of three distinct areas. Step through the welcoming double doors and look around. You will see 8 computers, stacks and shelves displaying the Teen collection, seating for at least 18-20 teens, and a large TV monitor for shows and movies from the Teen collection.

Continue through the space to the listening room—where a small group of teens can enjoy their personal music or other media—or just hang out. The Homework Center wraps up the tour, with three computer study carrels and enough room for 12 students to work independently or in small groups.

These areas also feature contemporary colors and furnishings, as well as a variety of seating including comfy upholstered chairs. Surrounded by walls of windows, The Loft offers abundant natural light and a wide-open view of the outdoors.
