Teen Summer Programs
Teens ages 12-18 are in for a treat this summer! We have teen programs every Thursday & Friday during June & July. Download our Teen Program Schedule to stay up-to-date on our calendar of events!
Help Your Community - Volunteer at the Library!
Earn volunteer service credit for college applications, service organizations, and add your experience to your resume. Our teen volunteer program runs year-round! Any teen age 13 to 18 is eligible to apply. Unfortunately, volunteering with the library cannot be used for court-ordered community service. You can pick up an application at the Information Desk during business hours.
We have an excellent young adult fiction section, non-fiction resources, databases, and audiovisual materials. However, we always want our collection to improve, so let us know how we can make it even better. We want young adults to be involved in the library so we have a Teen Advisory Board. It is for anyone 12-18 that wants to earn leadership hours and make the library a better place.
If you ever need help deciding what to read or how to finish an assignment we have bibliographies, awards lists, or you can talk to a librarian any time.
Reference Assistance: Students needing assistance in locating research materials such as newspaper articles, biographies and more can get assistance at the reference desk. Staff is on hand to help locate sources for information.
Computer Workstations: Moore Library has computer workstations to accommodate people of all ages. Children 11 and under must use computers in the children's department by showing a photo ID or library card. Youth ages 12 or over can use the teen computers in the reference department by showing a photo ID or library card. For more information, visit our computer policies.
