one of the best teen sites I have found this year

Thanks to the guy at Walking Paper for the link.

If you want to see an example of a teen library website done right, look no further than My Own Cafe. This is a community website based at the Southeastern Massachusetts Library. It provides message boards for kids to chat on in a safe environment, links to programs and activities going on in the area, and easy ways to find books, articles, and reading recommendations.

It's wonderfully put together, teen-centred, and a hell of a lot more fun than the average library teen website. I think the Library Loft is a pretty good site, but it pales in comparison to this.

THe sad thing is that if the fools behind DOPA have their way, this site will be inaccessible from schools and libraries.
