At the Hall Memorial Library teens are patron in grades 7-12. We have materials and programs just for you. Our Young Adult Advisory Board gives teens a chance to have their voice heard and their choices count. They help pick new books and music, plan programs, and have fun meeting new people!
Stop in and visit the Teen area at the Hall Memorial Library. It's a great place to do homework, listen to music, play checkers, or just hang out with friends. Find stuff to read in our collection and feel free to tell us what you think. We would like some suggestions from you!

**Hey Parents -- Keep in mind that materials in the Teen collection are chosen for a span of ages from 11 to18 years old, so that what may be appropriate for an 18-year-old might not be right for an 11-year-old. As always, we leave the parenting up to you.
