Display Your Artwork in the Teen Scene

Teens and tweens in grades 7-12: we are looking for your masterpieces! We are currently in the process of transforming one of the walls in the Teen Scene into a rotating art gallery featuring your artwork. We are looking for paintings, drawings, photography, anything at all that you have created and are proud of. Our goal is to make this space your space, so bring us your art. If interested, please fill out the Teen Art Submission Form and bring the form and your artwork to Teen Services.

Take One, Leave One Books

Need books for high school? Free classic books used in high school and college courses are located on the west wall in the Teen Scene. Grab a copy, and bring it back or keep it. Feel free to highlight or take notes in the books. These aren't cataloged "library books" and don't need to be checked out, so no library card is required — just take what you need.
