Anne LoVerso, 17, and Emily Van Laarhoven, 17, read while Alec Ober, 12, Michael Piekarz, 17, and Max Ludwig, 16 play video games at the grand opening of the Teen Space inside Southborough Library.

Southborough – The Southborough Public Library celebrated the grand opening of its new “Teen Space” on Tuesday, Nov. 13 with a night of pizza and Wii games. Aimed to better serve the needs of teenage patrons, the restructuring was funded by a federal grant and part of 17-year-old Michael Piekarz’s Eagle Scout Project. Piekarz led his peers in selecting the furniture and moving several banks of shelving, creating a comfortable nook for young adults to gather in.
