Teens in a libraryIf you're between the ages of 13 and 18*, the Teen Room is just for you!  It's on the first floor of the Central Library, just to the left as you come in the front door. The Teen Room provides a variety of books, magazines, comics, graphic novels, and manga. We also have videogames for several platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4/PS5, and XBox One.

Come hang out with your friends, play board games or card games, or use a desktop computer or a Chromebook.  We can help you find what you're looking for, whether it's resources for a school project or the next book you want to read for fun. And every month we host special programs and events for teens. Come see us!

You can reach the Teen Room by calling 617-623-5000 x2936. Want to email a staff member? Reach out to Ellen Jacobs, Head of Teen Services, at ejacobs@somervillema.gov.

*Everyone is welcome to browse the collection and look for specific materials, but seating and computers in the Teen Room are reserved for teens and their guests.
