How Can I use the Library?

Attend a Library Event

Libraries are great meeting place for like-minded people. Attending a Teen library program is an excellent opportunity to make new friends with similar interests. And if you're not sure what your interests are...library programs are a great place to start your exploration.

Volunteer

Volunteering is not only a great way to collect contacts and references for college but it's also an excellent place to give back and make a difference in your local community. Teens are able to volunteer in many different ways.  Learn More Here

Stay Current and Vote

Being up to date on current events and what's happening locally and globally is easy at the library.  In addition to the many periodical publications, the library also offers resources to help Teens research political issues and history so when the time comes to vote (which you can also do at most libraries), Teens will be ready!

Organize and Make Goals

If you've ever needed a space to go to where you can just hang out and chat with friends or a quiet space to do your homework uninterrupted, the library offers both! Most locations have meeting rooms or study rooms for patrons to use.
