For Teens

The Library offers teens much more than just a place to study.
We give young people opportunities to learn, gain leadership skills, fulfill community-service commitments — and have fun, too.
Check out our programs below.

If you’d like to keep up-to-date with our monthly teen events, sign up for our e-newsletter.
