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.

Stanford L. Warren teen services librarian Danielle

Danielle

Location: Stanford L. Warren Branch Library

Email: dsjohnson@dconc.gov

Danielle is the Teen Services Manager for Stanford L. Warren. She grew up in Durham, NC. She grew up reading many books, watching anime, and playing video games. The video game systems that hold a soft spot in her heart are the SNES and PS2. Most people she’s worked with in the library know that she wanted to go to circus school but has settled on taking lyra classes and improving her roller skating skills. Danielle is always plotting her next adventure!

Volunteer at the library

Looking to get involved? We have different volunteer tasks available at different locations and different times. In the past, teen volunteers have helped with shelving and pulling books, tutoring, prepping for crafts, and more. This program is for all tweens and teens in grades 6 – 12.

Teen Advisory Board (TAB) – The Teen Services Area is a space built for you. Come meet with other students and your librarians to create programs, revamp spaces, and be involved in the Library. Find out more on the Teen Advisory Board page.
