Teens Only

The Teen Zone is your space.  Read, play a board game, use the computers, have a study group, or just chill.  It’s okay.  That’s why we built this place.  We only ask that you follow a few simple rules: Be nice to each other (and to us—thanks!), if you make a mess clean it up, indoor voices, have fun, and...

Next Big Teen Book Release

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

Release Date:  September 16, 2014


Day 21 by Kass Morgan

It has been twenty-one days since the 100 landed on Earth. They're the only humans to set foot on the planet in centuries . . . or so they thought.

Facing an unknown enemy, Wells attempts to keep the group together. Clarke strikes out for Mount Weather, in search of other colonists, while Bellamy is determined to rescue his sister, no matter the cost. And back on the ship, Glass faces an unthinkable choice between the love of her life and life itself.
