Teen & In BeTween Services
The Teen & In BeTween Services Department serves kids and teens from grade 5-12. Our In BeTween section is housed upstairs in the children’s department and is growing every day! Geared towards kids in grades 5-7, this collection makes it easier for kids to browse books on their reading and interest levels. We also offer many programs specifically for “In BeTweens.” Take a look at our In BeTween programs taking place this summer!
Our Teen area on the lower level is growing as well. Check out our summer reading displays downstairs and take home some of our great new YA titles. We also have many programs this summer for teens.
Please remember to register as these programs do fill up! Download a copy of the Teen & In BeTween summer program calendar so you don’t miss any of our great programs.
We hope that you will join us for the 2016 2016 Teen & In BeTween Summer Reading Club. By reading and completing short book reviews, kids entering grades 6-12 can earn gift certificates to Game Stop, Book Revue, Ben & Jerry’s, Escape Pod Comics, iTunes, Starbucks, and Amazon! You can sign up at the library beginning June 23rd.
For every program attended this summer, Teens & In BeTweens will be entered to win one of our raffle baskets. Look for the baskets on the Lower Level beginning July 5th.
Teens entering grades 7-12 are also 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.
We always invite you to explore our print and non-print materials including fiction and non-fiction literature, graphic novels, audio books and Playaways, college guidebooks, online resources, and test preparation materials. Please contact Caitlin Sempowich at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions about Teen or In BeTween resources or programs!
