Young Adult Special Collection
In 2017 the library launched a special collection focusing on sensitive topics that teens and young adults may be facing. The collection launched with about 40 titles and will grow over time. The purpose of this collection is to provide resources to support young people dealing with difficult social or emotional issues. The YA Special Collection is located on the first shelf in the YA area on the upper level of the library.
Young people seeking support can also refer to our Get Help page, which provides links to crisis lines and human service providers.
