About Us

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 keri.adams@hackensack.bccls.org or ask for her at the Reference Desk.  Keri loves to help teens find books they will enjoy reading.

Teen Tuesday

Every Tuesday after school we have a free program for teens in Grades 7-12. The activities rotate on a weekly basis but often include video games, movies, crafts or active events. Advanced sign up is never required and weekly attendance isn’t necessary. You can come any time that you are available. Check our event list to the right for specific event information.


We are no longer seeking volunteers for the summer reading program. Please check back for volunteer applications next May.
