Teen Central is a room on the 3rd floor of the Central Library where all equipment, seating, and activities are reserved just for teens age 13-18. We have tons of room for studying, hanging out, group meetups, and more. Want to hold an event or meetup in our space? Let us know if you need any support like TV, sound, reserved tables, supplies, or snacks!
We're open the same hours as the library, and the area is staffed at all times, so reach out at the desk if you need help.
