Sure You Know MySpace, But What About TeenSpace?

Posted by grizzlymedia on December 12, 2007

TeenSpace

The Internet Public Library has a cool new “branch” called TeenSpace, and it’s made just for you. What does IPL TeenSpace have to offer? For starters, it has great Research and Writing Tips to help you write your research paper. It also has a Poetry Wiki if you’re into writing poetry, or maybe just because you like poetry, so be sure to tell your friends in the Live Poets Society. For all you Blatant Bibliophiles, there’s a Graphic Novels Guide. There are even FAEQs. You’re probably thinking I’m a bad typist and I actually mean FAQs, or frequently asked questions, which most websites have. No way, dude. IPL TeenSpace has FAEQs, frequently asked embarrassing questions, things teens need to know, answered by doctors, psychologists, dropout prevention experts, Planned Parenthood, and yes, even piercing experts! Yes, I said piercing experts from the Association of Professional Piercers. If you’re going to defile your body, at least do it safely, people! And did I mention the Homework Help?  Whatever you do, just don’t go to the Procrastinator link because it has cool, fun stuff that will distract you from doing your school work and your teachers will come in and try to hurt me for telling you about this website. In addition to their major links, the site has directories for clubs and organizations; health and sexuality; money and work; technology; reading and writing; school and homework help; sports, entertainment, and the arts. Sadly, the IPL’s Ask a Question Reference Service will be closed for the holidays from December 17, 2007 through January 7, 2008, but other features of TeenSpace will be available during the break.
