Reservable Books for Kids and Teens
Our junior floor renovation is underway! Unfortunately, this means that our junior and YA books are packed away in boxes. However, you can still place holds on items that others have currently checked out or that are recently returned to the library. To learn more about our curbside pickup process, click here. In the meantime, check out our digital content platforms with lots of selections for kids and teens!

STEAM Summer Camp 2019
The Teen STEAM Summer Camp is a six-week program for teens ages 13-18 designed to explore topics in science, technology, engineering, art and math. Campers gain in-depth, hands-on experience in STEM fields, art and design, public speaking, research, along with various other professional and personal skills.
Each week, campers engage with a different topic with fun and hands-on workshops led by professional presenters. The camp is a great way to build experience for your college resume, earn community service requirements, discover new interests, make long-lasting friendships, and have fun.
