Explore the young adult areas of our Downtown building and Painswick branch to find library materials, as well as information about our programs and activities for teens.  At the Downtown location, the young adult collection is located on the main floor of the Library. If you’d like to help us make our YA area even better - think about joining our Teen Advisory Board (TAB).

The Library offers free Internet access and word processing for project use, a quiet study room and many electronic resources. Some services and resources are also available in French. Get a library card, check out loan periods and find out how to get the best out of using your library. There’s a lot here to help make your library experience an even better one.
