Between the Stacks, a small-scale, self-pub­lished mag­a­zine, launched in 2022 to give cre­ative teens and tweens an out­let to show­case their work. Young patrons across DeKalb Coun­ty are encour­aged to par­tic­i­pate. I express myself through art and lit­er­a­ture,” says Lau­ren, a patron of Decatur Library. The teen zine allows me to share myself with more peo­ple.” Teens and tweens con­tribute poet­ry, art­work, and prose. Each zine fea­tures a theme, such as banned books or oceans of pos­si­bil­i­ties. I look for­ward to see­ing the art, as well as look­ing at what my friends and fel­low library-using-teens have to say,” shared Nico, a Hair­ston Cross­ing Library patron. It feels very val­i­dat­ing to see my work with all the oth­ers.” DCPL pub­lish­es a new zine each quar­ter. The Hair­ston Cross­ing Library keeps an archive of all issues.
