Both library locations have designated areas just for teens. The library values and welcomes teens and is committed to providing spaces and materials to serve this population in our community.
Main Library Teen Zone
The Teen Zone is designed by teens for teens and is restricted to youth ages 12-18. Teens have available to them magazines and computers as well as a comfortable space for reading, studying, and visiting. Space allows us to have teen magazines and a small selection of novels in the Teen Zone. The majority of Teen Fiction is located by author's last name in the Juvenile Fiction and Young Adult paperback sections of the library. A yellow YA sticker found on the spine label of juvenile fiction indicates that the main character or protagonist may be 13 years of age or older or the plot may include mature subject matter.
