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.

Additionally, we are offering the “Boba & Books” Teens program. Boba is a non-caffeinated tea drink that has tapioca balls (known as boba) as an ingredient- very fun and delicious! Each Boba & Books event has a specialized theme as well.  

The events scheduled for each day are at no cost. This is a time to relax, enjoy conversation, play their own music on a wi-fi speaker, and eat the food provided. No registration is required.

These programs occur in the Library’s Courtyard or in the Program Room if it is raining.
