Teen & In BeTween Services

The Teen & In BeTween Services Department serves kids and teens from grade 5-12. Our new In BeTween section collection makes it easy for kids in grades 5-7 to browse books on their reading and interest levels. Teens can check out our teen fiction & non-fiction, graphic novels, as well as test and college preparatory materials on the lower level of the building.

We also offer many programs for grades 5-12. Please remember to register as these programs do fill up! Sign up for programs online or download a copy of our current program calendar.

Are you looking for community service opportunities? Teens in grades 7-12 in the Cold Spring Harbor district are welcome to volunteer at the library to satisfy community service requirements. We require that you attend one of our orientation meetings, held every Thursday at 6:30pm, prior to signing up for volunteer hours.

Explore our print and non-print materials including fiction and non-fiction literature, graphic novels, audio books and Playaways, college guidebooks, movies, magazines, online resources, test preparation materials, and much more.

Do you have a question, a program idea, or a material suggestion? Please contact Caitlin Sempowich, Manager of Teen & In BeTween services at csempowich@cshlibrary.org.
