Kids & Teens Services

In the Kids & Teens department, our hard work often looks like play - probably because of the all of the colorful illustrations and cool robots. Every day we get to create new services for young people from birth all the way through high school. We present storytimes and coordinate educational and entertaining events that inspire families to learn and play. Our collaboration with schools and other community partners develops new opportunities for kids and teens to grow and get involved. We provide hands-on STEM and maker activities. Our VolunTeen program offers work experiences and training for teens. We want to make every day matter by providing access to books, tools, and technologies that young minds need in order to grow and succeed.
