Teens

Located on the 2nd floor of the library, APL’s teen collection offers teens ages 12-18 a variety of borrowing options such as YA books, manga, and graphic novels. 

Our Teen Space is a free area dedicated to teens of our community to hang out, work on homework, or play games.  The Teen Space offers wobble stools, yoga ball chairs, bean bag cushions, a LEGO table, whiteboard tables, computers, and a large screen Smart TV. 

Teen programming is offered throughout each month with arts & crafts, gaming hour, movie showings, manga club, and more! Take a look at our calendar for more details.
