The space:

The Teen Zone, newly renovated in the fall of 2016, resides on the main level of the library.  It houses the Young Adult collections: books, paperbacks, audio books, magazines and graphic novels.  Teens can access wifi or use one of two teens-only computer stations.  Teen Programming Coordinator, Mary Schneeberger, is often on-hand to answer questions and help teens find materials.

The programs:

JTAB (Junior Teen Advisory Board): open to anyone entering grades 5-8. Help plan special events for people your age. Monthly meetings feature games, book talk, and opportunities to meet new friends.

TAB (Teen Advisory Board): open to anyone entering grades 9-12 who is interested in meeting with peers to create library programs teens would enjoy.  Meetings are held monthly and usually involve a snack and something hands on that’s fun to do.  Past TAB events have included battle of the bands, dances and other creative, fun activities.

Scribblers: Creative Writing Club for ages 6-12. Held monthly on Wednesdays at 3:30.

Inspired Words: Showcase for unplugged original poetry, prose and music, held quarterly.
