Teen Health: The PPL Teen Library offers current, trusted, and reliable health information for teens. We have community resources as well as fiction and nonfiction books about Teen Health.

Skip Google: Find factual health information online with the MedlinePlus Teen Health or Teen Health & Wellness portals. Use these resources to answer your own questions or to research topics for school assignments. Teen staff also curate this list of library resources for health topics relevant to teens.

PPL Teen & the illustration institute are joining forces for a series of workshops and events for teens this summer. Our theme is Graphic Medicine. If you are a middle or high school student interested in comics and drawing, this series is a great way to expand your mind and your artistic portfolio!
