Northeast Teen Zone

The Teen Zone, located at the Northeast Branch Library, is the perfect place for teens to enjoy activities such as creative writing, robotics, and learn about entrepreneurship.  Students can connect and develop new friendships from the comfort of bean-bag chairs. We offer desktop computers, personal laptops, headphones, and other accessories for teens to check out anytime. We also have a Wii that students can play when the Teen Zone is open. We provide a fun, safe social space for teens to chat, read, listen to music, work on school/ personal projects, surf the web, and engage in online competitive gaming.
