Young Adult Services

About


Young adults at the Hall Memorial Library are teens in grades 7-12. We have materials and programs just for you.  Our Young Adult Advisory Board gives teens a chance to have their voice heard and their choices count. They help pick new books and music, plan programs, and have fun meeting new people! Stop in and ask about it.

Stop in and visit the young adult area at the Hall Memorial Library. It's a great place to do homework, listen to music, play checkers, or just hang out with friends. Find stuff to read in our collection and feel free to tell us what you think. We would like some suggestions from you!

What else can you do at the library?


You can surf the internet, check email, type research papers, and find out just about anything. We offer special programs just for teens, all kinds of contests (with prizes, of course) and a really smart staff waiting to help answer your questions. Try us, you will like us!
