Petworth had just gotten its first computer station: four tables pushed together with desktops planted on each one. This attracted a different crowd to the usually vacant library. I recognized the faces of other Roosevelt High kids as they pounded away at the keyboards, playing games or typing messages on Myspace. Those who were not at the computers waited impatiently for their turn. Girls in neon colored shirts with earrings to match popped gum and gossiped. Boys dribbled basketballs and pushed each other around. It was the type of behavior that would normally get people kicked out, but the librarians were too excited about having teenagers there to enforce the rules.
