We have many free programs, events and services for tweens. Children 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 in their work with children. There are always new ways for tweens and their families to stay engaged! 

Libraries today offer much more than books, movies, and quiet spaces! Literacy, play, and STEM exploration are built into our tween programs, so your family can enjoy the Library in new and exciting ways as you read, learn, connect, and create!

Our tween collection includes materials for ages 3rd - 5th grade including chapter books, fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, audiobooks, Playaways, Wonderbooks, DVDs, and book kits. We also have an extensive eLibrary collection! To learn more about how we choose materials, see our Collection Development Policy.
