Hang Out

Tween Zone
Tween Zone
This collection contains materials that are age-appropriate for 9- to 12-year-olds. With a donation from the Gregory Family, we created an inviting space for tweens and stocked it with graphic novels, mysteries, magazines, and fiction. Additional materials can be found in the Children's Room, including non-fiction books, graphic novels, and audio books.

TEENeSCAPE is an indoor library landscape just for teens.
