JUST FOR TEENS
Alpha Park Library’s Teen services include a dedicated Young Adult collection of fiction written specifically for readers for readers 12 and up, found on the first floor of the library, near the computer room. Audio books of many of these popular titles can be found with the adult audio book collection.
Alpha Park also hosts programming specifically for grades 7-12 monthly. Teen programs are a great place to make new friends and enjoy activities year-round.
