Over the past 10 years, we have tried to expand our young adult collection to reflect the newest trends in YA literature, as well as more traditional fare. Over the past 6 months, we have re-arranged existing shelving to provide more shelf space for our growing YA collection. In addition to the YA collection, many of our young adults are interested in our new Graphic Novel collection.
Young adult programming is also a big part of our annual Summer Reading program. Each year, we plan special programming for young adults entering grades 6-12, centered around the summer reading theme and designed to interest and involve teens.
We also have special activities and theme nights. Most recently, we have begun hosting after-hours “lock-in’s” at the library.
