The Teen collection encompasses a wide selection of fiction in all genres, including special collections of classic literature, graphic novels/comic books, and manga. Nonfiction for teens is interfiled with the adult nonfiction (at the Central Library, these books are on the second floor.) These books can be identified by the yellow and red "YA" labels on their spines. Teens are also free to check out books from the adult and childrens collections.
In the Teen Department you can find a number of magazines geared for teens. Below is the list of titles to which we currently subscribe. These magazines can be read in the library or taken out for one week at a time. Teens are also welcome to read and/or borrow magazines and newspapers from the Periodicals section (at the Central Library, this is located on the second floor.)
Now you can also read magazines online with our new service, Flipster!
