Written by teens for teens, it includes all sorts of great book, movie and music reviews and recommendations, original writing, a list of upcoming programs, general library news of interest to teens and much more! Each issue is different! Check out the Winter 2014 issue!

Class Visits & Outreach

We'd love to have your class visit the library for orientation and a tour. If you can't come to us, let us bring the library to you! Using a multimedia presentation, we introduce the research process and show how the library can assist students 24/7.
