Teen Space

DNL Teen Sec After 2

Whether after school or on a weekend, teens are invited to come to the library to enjoy a good book, play checkers, finish homework, or play games on a computer in your very own Teen Space! We also have some great programs all year round where you can watch a movie of your choice or even win some prizes. Library staff are here to help, so if you have a question, please ask. We can also assist you with your homework or preparing for that next big math test.
