The Teen Department offers a wide range of services to better prepare the teens of the community. We offer access to computers and an expansive collection of print resources, including books, magazines, and newspapers. We also have a diverse selection of online resources, including audio and digital copies of books, that can be downloaded free of charge.

In addition to the above, we offer a unique spectrum of programming designed by teens for teens. If you are interested in a program that we don’t currently offer, let us know and we will work to develop that program together. In addition to literacy, we have programs that focus on STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) centering on educating in these areas as well. We offer opportunity for all areas of teen literacy needs.

The Teen Department is active on Social Media! If you have a question about our collection or you have an idea about a program, send a message or tweet the department and we will get back with you as quickly as we can! We have a Facebook, Twitter, and an Instagram!
