Programs for Teens

​Teen programs are geared for anyone in 6th grade through the summer following high school graduation.


Whether you are looking for your next great ready or are simply looking for a place to hang out after school, our teen area is a welcoming, safe space. Ask at the library desk during your visit to find out any teen activities we have available that week.

While the library staff encourages all patrons to seek out and read any book in our catalog they find interesting, adults and younger children NOT accompanied by a teen should limit their visit in the teen area to 15 minutes. Teen area seating is exclusively reserved for teen use.

Join the Teen Advisory Board (TAB)!


TAB is a free leadership development program for local middle and high school-aged youth interested in becoming more involved in their library and community. TAB members participate in and influence the functioning of the Mildred Whipple Library, especially in relation to teen programing and teen collection development. 


The TAB program is a forum to have your opinions and suggestions heard while you learn job skills and earn volunteer hours. Any students in grades 6th-12th in the North Douglas Library District are welcome to join the TAB.
