Teen Zone

Finally....a place just for TEENS!  Located at the back of the kids' section, the Teen Zone has young adult books, magazines, audio books, computers, a large table, and plenty of seating.  Best of all?  It's for teens only.  That means that younger kids and adults are welcome to come in to grab a book- but computers and seating are reserved for ages 13-17 only.

As part of this exclusive group, teens must remember:  'With great privilege comes great responsibility". In case you're not sure what those responsibilities might be, see the library's code of conduct.
