The Teen Department at Johnson Public Library is happy to serve students in Grades 7-12 (though people of all ages are welcome to check out our collection!). We have a weekly Teen Tuesday program during the school year and an exciting series of Summer Reading events each year! Check our event calendar for all the details. All of our programs are completely FREE!
Please direct any questions, comments or book recommendation requests to Keri, our teen librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask for her at the Reference Desk. Keri loves to help teens find books they will enjoy reading.
Events (Check out our event list to the right for specific dates and more information)
Every Tuesday after school, we have a FREE program for students in Grades 7-12. The topic rotates weekly but often includes video games, crafts, movies, active events, trivia, food programs and more. You do not have to sign up in advance to attend these programs and you do not have to attend every week.
Join us for our new Volunteen Program – a way for teens to volunteer to help both the library and their world!
