The Teen Zone (for high school students) is located on the first floor, near the Information Desk. There are eight computers, and comfortable chairs and tables just for high school students.
School-assigned Books and Summer Reading
We have copies of the books on your school-assigned reading list. Come early to get them! Also, come to the first-floor Information Desk to sign up for our High School Summer Reading Program. Residents can sign up beginning June 7, and non-residents on June 14. You can use your school-assigned reading to win prizes in our contest. The grand prize is an Asus tablet. Make that required reading pay off in a big way!
