Teen Stuff

The Young Adult area of the library contains fiction materials for teens in 6-12th grades. Additionally, graphic novels, magazines, and Morris schools' textbooks are located in this section. Young Adult audiobooks and nonfiction are incorporated into the adult department and are identified by a "YA" (usually suitable for grades 6 and up) or "Teen" (usually suitable for grades 9 and up) sticker on the spine.

Teens ages 11-18 may access library computers with a completed parental permission form on file. These forms are available at the front desk at the library.
