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 useful programs below.
If you’d like to keep up-to-date with our monthly teen events, sign up for our e-newsletter. We send out emails on the first of each month.
Teen Advisory Board
Your voice is needed! Join our Teen Advisory Board (TAB) and give us a window into what teenagers are looking for in a library setting. Help with library projects and programming, and meet other teens in the community. TAB meetings take place at the Baldwin Public Library, and Seaholm and Groves High Schools. Lunch is provided at the high school meetings. All teens are welcome to attend. Registration is required.

When it comes to learning, sometimes you just need a little extra help. That’s why we’ve partnered with Brainfuse to offer patrons valuable live online tutoring in the fields of math, science, writing and much more.
