Public computers are down at North Regional Library.
All library locations and services will be closed Monday, 5/30, for Memorial Day.

For teens

The library is a place for you to be you.

Hang out with your friends. Have some time to yourself. Ask us a question, or tell us how it’s going.

Join a book club. Do an activity. Get creative.

Use the computer. Get help with research. Learn about technical school, college, and whatever you aspire to be.

And oh yeah, check out a book.
