Teen Programs

The Teen Space has moved!

The library’s Teen Space is now located on the main floor in the former adult reading corner. The Teen Space will be open to teens in grades 6-12 only during after school hours between 2:30-5:00pm (*unless there is an early release). The new Teen Space will have a various activities, projects, and crafts which will change daily. You can come hang out, color, do your homework (maybe?), read a book or magazine, etc. It’s your space; use it the way you want!
