Second Life is a 3-D virtual world entirely built and owned by its residents. Adult and Teen worlds on Second Life are separate. A Teen Second Life Campus and the support for a library on this campus is in the planning stages.
The Alliance Library System and OPAL (Online Programming for ALL Libraries) are offering programs and eventually services through Second Life.
A goal of the Virtual Teen Library is to create teen centered services and programs, taught by teens themselves and to promote useful services to teens that might not use the real library.
Another goal is to involve librarians, educators, school media specialists, authors, artists, and more to teach skills at the Virtual Teen Library.
