We have many free programs, events and services for teens. They can get help with their homework or take part in summer learning programs. We also offer homeschool help and resources for parents, caregivers and teachers who work with teens. There are always new ways for teens and their families to stay engaged!
Libraries today offer much more than books, movies, and quiet spaces! Literacy, adventure, and STEM exploration are built into our teen programs, so they can enjoy the Library in new and exciting ways as they read, learn, connect, and create!
Our teen collection includes materials for ages 6th-12th grade including fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, audiobooks, playaways, and DVDs. We also have an extensive eLibrarycollection! To learn more about how we choose materials, see our Collection Development Policy.
