Our Teen Space

The teens have a new space in the library! Sit in the light of our large boulevard view window and enjoy free WiFi, a good manga or a hot book. The library's computers and printer are also available. If you're feeling stuck with a research project, our librarians will be happy to help you find resources that will get you started in the right direction.
