The Teen Department (Ages 12-18)

The Teen Department is on the upper level overlooking the main library area, and features space to read, do homework, and hang out.  We have all of your favorite fiction and science fiction, plus an impressive collection of manga, graphic novels, and audiobooks on CD and Playaway (just plug in your earbuds and go).

Downstairs, we have tons of programs in the Library lab and Meeting Room, like Teen Tuesday every Tuesday at 6pmand Minecraft for Teens on the first and third Wednesdays.  We also offer special events for snow days and school breaks, and unless we say otherwise, you're always welcome at the adult events, too.  At these we like to make cool things, often with the Library Lab equipment, like the vinyl cutter and 3D printers, and we've recently added robot kits.

Did we mention the video games we have to borrow?  We've recently amped up our collection, so stop by for new titles and old favorites.  Not sure if you want to invest in that title?  Come borrow it first and see.  Already own it?  Grab a copy so you and your buddies can play together online.

Need help with your schoolwork?  We've got you covered with staff to help you find the information you need quickly and efficiently.  If you've got a really tricky question, you can Book-a-Librarian, which gets you a 30-minute one-on-one appointment with one of us so we can help you figure it out.  We also have programs designed to help you conquer those assignments, like PowerPoint and excel classes for really slick presentations.  We also have the computers to power your work, and the printer to make it look great.

Stop by to see what we're up to, and give us your ideas.  What would you like to learn or do?
