Teen Job Fair 2019

In February, we expect more than 200 teens to come to the Library in hopes of landing their first job. We’re gathering local businesses looking to hire teens, providing experts to give teens tips on improving their resumes and interviewing skills, making it simple for teens to connect with potential employers.

The best part about our Teen Job Fair? Teens get hired!

Teen Book Boxes

We're offering a special new service, just for teens (ages 12-19): Teen Book Boxes. Teens sign up and let us know their reading preferences. Then each month, we'll have a custom box ready for you, including a book we know you'll love and some other goodies, too.

Have an avid teen reader in your family? This would make a great gift that keeps giving as you can sign them up for a 3-month subscription. (Don't worry, the recipient can choose their own reading preferences so you don't have to guess for them.)

Take the Winter Challenge

This winter, our Challenge will help you explore your world. Whether from the comfort of your own home, out in nature or while visiting the Library, we're ready to help you discover all the wonders of the world we live in by reading and completing fun activities.

All ages love our Challenges because they're perfect to complete as a family. Work together on activities and make time to read together, too.

Kristallnacht Reads

On Nov. 7, 1938, German diplomat Ernst vom Rath was fatally shot in Paris by 17-year-old Herschel Grynszpan, a Polish Jew. Grynszpan and his family had been among the estimated 12,000 Polish Jews arrested, stripped of their property and deported from Germany in October 1938. By shooting vom Rath, Grynszpan sought to alert the world to the grave situation in Germany under Adolf Hitler.
