Teens have a safe, welcoming place to study, socialize, and access new technology and materials with the Clearview Library District. Not only that, but our community’s young adults have a voice and ownership in library programs and resources through the Teen Advisory Group, which meets quarterly.
Programs are exclusive to the age group and range from Dungeons and Dragons to Teen Cooking Challenge, and Teen Craft-a-Thon to Poetry Slam. Teen programs pair learning new things with social skills that prepare them for life beyond high school in a judgement-free zone.
On the opposite side of the Windsor-Severance Library as the Children’s Area, the Teen Space is distinct with comfy chairs, collaborative art projects, and dedicated computers framed by the Young Adult books, video games, and graphic novels / manga. (We have more than 2,000 video games for 14 different consoles.)
Roman Empire? Spanish verb conjugation? The life cycle of a fruit fly? No matter the topic or assignment, we can help! Here are a few resources to get you started:
- Brainfuse - Live tutors and study resources, including ACT and SAT test prep.
- Explora High School - Articles, essays, videos, and primary source documents.
- History Reference Center - Most comprehensive full-text history reference database.
Teens ages 12-18 can volunteer at the library. Opportunities include helping prepare programs and special projects, shelve materials, and more — all on your own schedule. Visit our volunteer page for more information and the application.
