  2. Under “My Settings” (top right-hand of the screen) click on “Suggested Purchases.”

May Teen Programs

Here's what's happening in May for teens at the library:


Teen Library Yearbook

To mark the end of a year's programs, we'll be making the first ever teen library yearbook in June.  It will be filled with art, photos, writing and more - all from things that have happened at teen programs or in the teen spaces of the library.

If you'd like to contribute, just give the teenbrarian your work, and she'll make sure it's added to the book.  Copies of the yearbook will be available in both teen zones for you to check out.


Community QSA

Looking for a safe space?  Want to support LGBTQA rights?

In partnership with The MAT and OUTreach, the library is now hosting a monthly Queer Straight Alliance meeting on the last Tuesday of every month.  The meetings are open to anyone ages 16-21.

We meet in the Community Meeting Room of the Main Branch at 7:00pm.

You can also connect with the group on Facebook.
