Hey teens - we have so many new books for you! We've recently added a great mix of young adult fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novels, with more on the way. Look out for some new nonfiction sets coming soon featuring important topics like how to deal with discrimination, sexual assault, family issues, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, the threat of deportation, and much more!
October 7-13 is Teen Read Week!
Vote now through October 13 for your favorite teen novel of the 25 nominees for the 2018 Teens' Top Ten. Check out one of these from the library today!
Join us at the library on Friday, October 12 at 3:00 pm to have pizza and watch a classic teen movie from the '80s, Sixteen Candles, and discuss how things have changed for teens since then and why the movie has been a topic for conversation in the #MeToo movement.
