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 judgment-free zone.
The Teen Area at the library is a vibrant and welcoming space created specifically with teens ages 12 to 18 in mind. Located north of the Children's Imagination Room, just past the Explore Kit Collection, it's a place to read, study, collaborate with friends, or just hang out. Here, teens can explore their interests and be creative in their own space. Also, the Teen Area offers exciting programs where you can hang out with friends and enjoy some fun activities together.
With computers, comfy seats, and workstations, you can browse and check out our collection of young adult fiction, nonfiction, and manga or even play games with friends. For those looking for some extra fun, you can access the Teen Tower Video Gaming Space and find your inner gaming hero. Discover the hidden gems of the Teen Area today and claim it as your new go-to spot in the library for good vibes and great reads.
