Welcome to the Teen Library at PPL!
Our space is a place to read, watch, study, game, connect, learn, and create. The Teen Library @ 5 Monument Square has dedicated seating, technology, resources, and library staff for ages 12-19.
Teachers: we are happy to arrange library tours, orientations, or classroom visits for middle or high school aged students! We kindly request that you contact us with a minimum of two weeks advance notice in order to ensure adequate staffing for your visit. To arrange a tour or a classroom visit, please contact Teen Lead Librarian, Kelley Blue.
