For Teens

Teens, explore our YA section in the back corner of the library!  We have a variety of novels, comics, manga, anime DVDs, and more.  You can spend time in our comfortable seating areas and charge your devices.  We even have board games to play in the library.  

We have opportunities to volunteer with daily library opperations as well as our Summer Library Program.  These hours count toward high school graduation requirements if you bring us the forms!  Contact the library for more information.  

We have a variety of programming available to teens- see details below!  Check our facebook page for additional info and changes to the schedule.
