Teens at the Library

Being a teen is hard. We know that. That's why when we renovated the library recently, we made an effort to make the space more teen-friendly, with more device charging locations and furniture, more lounging spaces (there's a special young adult section just for you to hang out), and more public computers (plus free Wi-Fi) to keep connected to all your favorite stuff. The library is a place you can come and be yourself while exploring what the world has to offer.

We're also committed to creating programming just for teens. Fandemonium, a reboot of our popular Anime Club, is a group that meets monthly to indulge in the trends that interest them, from Anime to Star Wars and everything in between. You can expect snacks, videos, crafts and activities, all centering around the things YOU like, while meeting other awesome teens. In November, we have a crafting program focusing on learning to make Kumihimo Bracelets, and all the supplies are provided - just drop by after school! Then in December, why not watch, and interact with, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog in our Stockwell Room on the big screen, with our epic surround sound system!

To quickly find other events for your age, be sure to use the filters beneath the calendar on our website. All of our events listings are color coordinated, with the bar to the left of the summary corresponding to the age categories at the right below the calendar. You can also stay connected by following us on Twitter or Facebook!

Lastly, by joining the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), you can make a difference in the types of teen programming and materials we offer at the library. You'll also get the chance to write and film book reviews - about books YOU like to read! Not only will your voice be heard by joining the committee, you'll also get a letter of recommendation for college applications (juniors and seniors). Be empowered, meet other teens, and make a difference!

Stop by the library and say hey to our Youth Services staff, shout out ideas, scope out the new layout, and check out all of the great materials we have to offer. Did you know that we have video games for 3 different platforms that you can borrow? We also have free e-books, accessible through our online catalog or directly through http://ohioebooks.org/. Don't hesitate to give us a call at 419-289-8188 or email us.
