#What are you reading?
Your library has the best (and newest) young adult books and an extensive collection of comics, graphic novels and manga. If you don't see what you need on the shelf, just ask! Another library probably has it and we can send it to your preferred location!
#Part hangout space, part study space
Did you know some branches have dedicated teen rooms and computers? Or that you can Reserve a Study Room at the Library? Find your branch under “Locations and Hours” to see what rooms are available to book. You can also ask your librarian about teen drop-in activities like Drop-In Dungeons & Dragons.
Whether you're in the Library, at school or studying at home: You can connect to 100% FREE homework and research help, level up and learn new software and skills with LinkedIn Learning, and set yourself up for success in college (and in your future career)!
#What does your future hold?
Whether you're planning to take the AP, SAT or ACT exams; get into college; or land a job, Gale Presents: Peterson’s Test and Career Prep can help you get there. This single resource provides in-depth career assessments, information on over 4,000 accredited colleges and universities, access to resume and cover letter building tools, and much more! All you need is a library card! Note: If you're a DCPS student, just enter your S-number.
#Make Your Voice Heard or Volunteer
Imagine if teen spaces and events were designed for you, by you (and your friends)...
At Teen Advisory Board, your voice matters! Last year, TAB planned a thrilling murder mystery and even a dessert decorating competition! What's next? That's up to you!
Join us at TAB to vote for, plan and make things happen at your Library!
If you need Bright Futures Scholarship hours, you can also volunteer by helping out at TAB or other teen programs. If your library doesn't have a TAB, you can help out in other ways, too!
