Enjoy the soft chairs in our teen space while you browse our collection of over 5,000 books, magazines, books on Playways and CDs for teens.  If you can’t find what you are looking for or want a good suggestion for a book to read, stop by the Front Desk, and we will help you!

We have more than books for teens at GPL! Throughout the year, there are numerous programs for you to participate in.

  • The Crafty Bandits is our monthly craft club for teens where you learn how to make cool stuff like sock monkeys, silk-screened shirts, and more.  We supply the materials, while you supply the creativity!
  • For our monthly Teen Tuesdays program, we’ll watch a movie, play games, make food, write, or do another type of activity. The theme changes each month.
  • We also have an after-hours program one Friday a month. Ready to get your geek on? Check out Nerd’s Night Out with a variety of different activities from a different nerd-dom every month.

Sign up for these monthly activities at the Circulation desk.

During the school year, stop by on Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 in the teen area for Teen Café to hang out, study, find a book, check out a board game, color, and enjoy a warm drink while you chillax.

Each summer, we plan a Teen Summer Reading Experience where you have a chance to receive prizes for reading and to participate in exciting activities. While the theme changes from year to year, the food always tastes great! Thanks to community support, we give away prizes such as movie passes and books.

During the school year, the Teen Advisory Board (TAB) meets monthly to give input and feedback on our programs, clubs, book collection, and more! Anyone in grades 6-12 is welcome; snacks provided. Though we’re done meeting for this year, we’ll start up again in the fall!
