Teen Second Life snags a library

For those of you who haven't heard of Teen Second Life here's a blurb that describes it quite well:

"Teen Second Life is a 3-D, international gathering place on the Internet where teens 13-17 can make friends, play, learn and create. Teens create a digital version of themselves, called an avatar, that they use to travel around the "virtual world," meet new people and participate in a variety of activities."

This was an announcement from Oct 6th: http://alliancelibrarysystem.com/article.cfm?id=1176

Charlotte, NC - Oct. 6, 2006 -The Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County (PLCMC) and the Alliance Library System are pleased to announce a partnership to collaborate on the "Eye4You Alliance," an island in Teen Second Life that will offer virtual library services to teens.

If any of you attended the 2006 SLMS conference in Rochester, NY you heard Chris Harris (aka Infomancy) discuss the possibilities of Second Life. It is nice to see a library becoming involved. There is a library in Second Life but it isn't "officially" sponsored by a "real" library.
