New Books in the Teen Collection

The "Teen" collection, located in the Children's Department, consists of fiction and nonfiction books, audiobooks, graphic novels, and DVDs selected especially for Junior-High-age teens. 


Happy Friday, book nerds! As part of our ongoing Epic Reads: Live at Home programming, we wanted to let you know that we have an extra special Instagram conversation going on today, Friday, May 8 at 4:00 pm

Kiera Cass, AKA the mastermind behind both The Selection series and the newly released The Betrothed, will be joining Sabrina from Team Epic Reads to talk all things royal romance and answer questions that readers like you have submitted. It's going to be a grand affair, no doubt. We'd hate for you to miss it, so we hope to see you there!
