Teen Events: the main event happens every day after-school at the main branch. Here teens can collaborate, study, socialize and game. Seating and technology in the Teen Library are reserved for teens only. Mentors and tutors of teens are welcome to join their students to use our study rooms, computers, collections, or ask a Teen staff member for assistance.

In addition to our daily routine, the Teen Library plans a variety of teen events and special programs throughout the year. Check in below for highlights of upcoming events as well as ongoing Teen series.
