Brooklyn Public Library branches may be closed, but it is still trying to keep teenagers occupied through the use of social media.
Bayleigh Janusik, the library information supervisor at the Walt Whitman Public Library, says the library is still holding art projects and writing challenges on Instagram.
She also always offered Dungeons and Dragons at the library, and decided to move it virtually.
Janusik says teenagers are gaining valuable skills like learning about technology, communicating effectively and working with a team to solve puzzles.
She also says that parents have been thanking them for keeping their teenagers distracted while they work.
The library believes its role in communities is even more important now by connecting residents who are isolated and making sure teenagers don't fall through the cracks with their education.
