Teen Programs


The Teen Area is located across from our main Circulation Desk behind a privacy wall to give those patrons gathered in that space some separation from the rest of the Library. Inside the Teen Area we have provided flexible furniture, a television for gaming, and a growing collection of books, graphic novels, audio books, and video games. The Teen Area is a safe and fun space for local youth to gather in.  For a schedule of upcoming teen programs please visit the calendar section on this website.
