Teen Services & Resources

At the library, serving teens in our community means helping them discover impactful works, develop real world skills, and create their own unique voices. Our Teen Room offers a completely remodeled space to reach all of the goals we share with teens.
 
In our Teen Room, you’ll find lots of comfortable seating and workspaces. You can take a look at the rotating student art displays or try your hand at some magnetic poetry. Our expansive Young Adult collection boasts continuously updated and award winning fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels. We also have a curated magazine selection just for teens.
 
If you’re feeling lost on which book should be your next read, check out our monthly staff picks for our favorite or newest fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels.
 
We also engage in weekly and monthly teen programming! Read and discuss books in our monthly Teen Book Club, chat about all things anime in our monthly Anime Club, and engage with our weekly live Teen Wellness Wednesdays on social media. We also do special events and programming throughout the year, including Teen Movie Nights, Trivia, and a variety of games. Teens are also welcome at our monthly Creative Writing Club, which is open to everyone 13 and up.
