Teens / Y.A.L.L.

Teen DepartmentThe library has something to offer to everyone – especially teens! We have hundreds upon hundreds of manga and graphic novels, every Dungeons & Dragons rulebook and campaign, and all of these are free to use and check out! We have regular programs – from D&D sessions to video games and virtual reality to anime clubs – and if you just need a place to chill and charge your phone, we can do that too.

Can’t find a book you’re looking for, or want to see us do some cool event or have a great idea? Contact our Teen Librarian, Dustan Archer, and he’ll take care of it! We also have resources you can use for homework and research projects, as well as books on rough subjects ranging from mental health concerns to addiction to gender identity and more.

Feel free to browse the collection anytime we’re open, or ask Dustan to help you find exactly what you’re looking for!

Are you a teen, or parent/guardian of one, that’s home bored and you miss hanging out with your friends? We have teen events online!

Contact Young Adult Librarian Dustan Archer to get access to the Discord server and stay in contact with other library teens and get the latest information on programs!
