Teens

A corner of the library designed by teens, for teens.  Come in and play games on the café style table, relax in one of the rocker chairs, or use one of the teen computers.  There is also a table for homework or group study. In the teen area, you can find young adult fiction and graphic novels.  The nonfiction is close by for easy access.  

Computers, too?  The library has 2 computers that are just for teens.  They are located in the teen section. If they are being used you can always use one of our other computers.  But first! You need to get a parent to come in and sign a permission slip (it’s the law!)  Once we have your permission slip just ask for a pin number to log on!

Teen Tech Programs
