#What would a library made just for teens look like?
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 location! Plus, your library card or student ID gives you instant access to FREE streaming movies, e-books and so much more with apps like Libby, Hoopla and Kanopy on your phone!
#Need a ride to the library?
JTA has you covered! Any student in Duval County (from middle to high school age) can ride buses for free. Just show your student ID. You can drop in at after school for board games, book clubs, crafts and other activities. We even have some virtual programs you can attend from home.
Visit your local library (we love answering questions), sign up for our Teen Think Tank email newsletter, or follow us social media. And if you have ideas about how to improve teen services at the Library, make your voice heard in Teen Advisory Board or by volunteering at the Library!

#Part hangout space, part study space
Did you know you can book a quiet study room at the library? Some branches even have dedicated teen rooms and computers. Find your branch under “Locations and Hours” to reserve a room for your next study session.
Plus, you can get homework and research help online, level up and learn new software and skills with LinkedIn Learning, and set yourself up for success in college (and in your career) with Peterson’s Test Prep. It’s all FREE with your library card.
