Written by Leah BaumgartnerHi, my name is Leah Baumgartner and I work in the Teen Zone at the Wells County Public Library. I’ll be honest and say that when I was first asked many years ago to help with the teens I was rather surprised to find out how much fun I had working with them. I still enjoy working with them today! Of course, I also love to read! If you see me in the library be sure to stop by and say hi!
