Creative Use of Your Library Card

"One girl said she used a butter knife and a library card to break into vacant houses."

The New York Times published the first of two articles on the increase in youth runaways. This piece supposedly ties runaways with the current economic climate, but only one sentence out of 4 pages mentions the recession. Still, it is definitely worth a read.

On a somewhat related note, the Sociology October book displays are on National Domestic Violence Awareness Month as well as Crime Prevention Month. Be sure to check them out in the next few days.
