National Summer Learning Day

Do you have summer reading assigned for school that you need to work on? Drop everything & read with us in the teen room. The teen room will be a designated quiet room for the day so we can all motivate each other to get some reading done together while enjoying snacks.

Library Card Sign Up

Teens are encouraged to sign up for library cards all year round! Young Adults ages 13-17 may apply for a library card on their own. According to Ocean State Libraries, "students ages 14 to 17 may provide proof of their enrollment in a public or private school in Rhode Island (class schedule, transcript, report card, etc.) in lieu of a photo ID if they do not otherwise have one. Proof of home address must still be provided if not stated on school enrollment documents." For computer privileges, all students under the age of 17 must have a parent or guardian sign the permission form.
