For Teens

Teens in 6th-12th grade are invited to hang out in the Teen Room, a space built for teens. You can attend a program, read books & magazines, play one of our video games, or just hang out with your friends.

The Teen Study room is available for students to use for individual studying or for groups working on school projects.

Introducing Colin, our new Teen Librarian:

Hi, I’m Colin, your new Teen Librarian! My job is to make sure to support you (the young people of Madison) in your academic and personal lives by helping you locate information. If you are doing a school research project, I can help you find the best sources possible. If you have a friend who is going through a mental health crisis, I can help you find resources on mental health. If you have discovered an evil cult worshipping dark elder gods, I can help you figure out the exact flavor of soul-destroying evil they are trying to summon into the mortal plane.

In short: If there’s information you need, come to me. Google can give you millions of results, but I can get you the right answer.

I also purchase books for the teen room and run Scranton’s teen programs. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or just want to say “hi” give me a call at (203) 245-7365, email me at welchc@scrantonlibrary.org, or schedule an appointment to come into the library by calling us at (203) 245-7365.
