The TCPL Teen Center has computers, tables, comfy chairs, booths, and our ever-popular spinning stools for your socializing and studying needs. It is designed for grades 6-12 or their homeschool equivalent. Everyone is welcome to look for a book in the room at any time but please show support for our teen community by finding seating in other areas of the library.
