Library books for teenagers or young adults?

We have a Divergent display at the moment near the entrance and although I haven’t actually seen anyone take a book from it, I had to replace a couple the other day so I was very pleased!

I’m trying to get people to borrow more of our teenage books but it’s difficult. The Teenage section is tucked away in the computer room, which doesn’t help, and should we change the name to Young Adult? There’s a big crossover with other books in the library and the Dark Romance section is very popular, so perhaps some of the teenage books should be promoted by genre rather than by age? Or perhaps Young Adult e-books are the answer – I love the graphics on another library blog (the inspiration for this display).
