We welcome teens at the Library! Contact the Teen Librarian at email@example.com for more information about what we offer.
Teens from 7th-12th grade are welcome to enjoy our dedicated Teen Space, which is great for studying, hanging out, playing games, reading, and more. We have fiction, nonfiction and graphic novel books, magazines, board games, a whiteboard, and table space to spread out and get some work done.
See our Recommendations for Teens page for staff picks, award winners, Battle of the Books, high school reading lists, and more.
NOTE: Due to COVID-19 and the need for limiting the number of people in the Library at one time, we are suspending our volunteer program indefinitely. Please check back here for further updates or contact the volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-929-5115 if you have any questions.

We host book discussions, video game tournaments, ACT/SAT prep sessions, and much more. See all of our teen programs in the Event Calendar.
We have several online resources to help with homework, research, and exploration. You can also connect online with a live tutor on HelpNow! by Brainfuse to get one-on-one help with homework, skills building, and test prep. Tutors are available every day from 3-10 pm, except holidays. A 24/7 Center is available during off-hours.
