Teen Collection

Teen/Young Adults - A Special Section of the Humanities Department

TEEN/YOUNG ADULTS

GENERATION READ MOTIVATING YOUNG ADULTS TO BECOME LIFELONG READERS

Teens demand current, interesting, and meaningful books that reflect their personal experiences. That's exactly what they can find in this exciting collection filled with the latest YA titles as well as authors that address important teen issues and topics.

SO MANY BOOKS, SO LITTLE TIME.
When the reading bug bites, teens will find a wide variety of current authors and titles, in both hardcover and paperback formats from which to choose. Many novels in the collection address serious issues - such as peer pr violence, and drugs - that particularly affect teens.
MAGAZINES AND COMICS AND BOOKS, OH MY
Although aimed at teens, adults have also been known to browse the collection's array of magazines, graphic novels, and comic books. All of these materials can be checked out and enjoyed by everyone.
REPORT CARDS WONT SCARE YOU
In addition to novels, comics, and magazines, the collection also includes a large selection of classics  frequently assigned in school as well as book notes and study guides to help teens understand what they're reading.
