People on computers in a library

Upcoming Events

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.

Exclusive Programs

Programs are exclusive to the age group and range from Dungeons and Dragons to Teen Cooking Challenge, and Teen DIY 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.

Teen Areas

The Teen Areas at the Windsor and Severance Library locations are vibrant and welcoming spaces created specifically for teens ages 12 to 18 in mind.
