Teen Reads: The Teen Library at Monument Square offers fiction, nonfiction, comics, manga and magazines selected especially for teens (we also have movies and video games!). If you can’t make it to the main library, the Bookmobile and all of our branch locations have special teen collections, too.

Prefer to download? cloudLibrary offers the latest teen eBooks and audiobooks to borrow for free on your device of choice. All you need is your library card.

Our Teen staff love teen reads just as much as you do and are here to help you find your next favorite book. You can also browse our carefully curated (and constantly updated) recommendation lists right here on our website.

Our Teen Holiday Gift Guide is now live! Handpicked fiction, nonfiction and graphics for all the teens and forever-teens on your list. Also available in cute bookmark form in the Teen Library. Arranged alphabetically by author.

Many Voices at PPL Teen is a book group with two purposes: (1) to recognize the need for all teens to see themselves mirrored in the books on our shelves, and to use fiction as a window into other lives, cultures, and worldviews beyond their own; (2) to create a space for the diverse teen voices in our own community to share the books that excite and engage them. Each month is a free-choice read based on a unique theme.
