Teen Scene

The Teen Scene is located on the lower level of the library. The collection includes:

  • Teen fiction (including popular authors like Suzanne Collins, Sarah Dessen, John Green, and L.J. Smith, as well as classics and books assigned by local schools)
  • Teen nonfiction (including high-appeal nonfiction and resources for school projects)
  • Graphic novels (including Japanese manga and superhero comics)
  • Teen magazines (including Seventeen, Mad, and Slam)
  • College guides and test prep resources

The Teen Scene also offers:

  • Space to work with groups or tutors
  • A collection of board games and card games to use within the library
  • Computers designated for teen use only

Any library patron may use the Teen Scene collection, but the furniture is reserved for students going into grades 6-12. The computers can only be logged onto with New Albany-Floyd County Public Library young adult library cards.

Teen Programs

We have a variety of programs for tweens and teens going into grades 6-12 (or homeschool equivalent). Unless otherwise noted, no advance registration is required. These teen events are held monthly:

Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

The library’s teen advisory board usually meets monthly. See online calendar for dates. It is a group of awesome teen volunteers who meet monthly with the teen services librarian to:

  • Talk about books they’ve read
  • Hear about the newest books
  • Suggest new books for the library to add to their collection
  • Suggest new activities for the library to host
  • Help plan those new activities
  • Teach the teen librarian cool new slang
  • Eat snacks

Teen Anime Club

Teen Anime Club generally meets on the last Wednesday of the month from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM, in the library’s auditorium. Each month interested teens make a craft or activity inspired by anime or Japanese culture, discuss their favorite anime and manga, and watch a few episodes of a voted-upon anime.

 

In addition to our recurring monthly programs, we also have special events for teens, such as last year’s Un-Valentine’s Day Party and Earth Day Celebration. Keep your eyes on our calendar for upcoming special events!
