Young Adults: if you’re 13–20 years of age, this is your place to meet, discover and share.

The Young Adult Library provides a quality collection of fiction to teens and young adults. Our collection also includes informational texts, young adult talking books and movies. We strive to provide a quality collection of young adult literature with diverse appeal.  The Young Adult Library also offers an appealing study space to our young adult patrons between the ages of 13 and 20.

We welcome all teens to come check out our Young Adult collection and space here at the Community Library. The Community Library is YOUR library.

We also offer a study space to our teen and young adult patrons.

While we welcome all patrons to browse the young adult shelves, hanging out or studying in the young adult room is reserved for those ages 13–20.

  • Non-Fiction
