Teen Lounge

Our Teen Lounge is for library visitors ages 12-17. This enclosed space is a great place to meet friends, work on homework or play board games. It includes two large monitors for connecting to laptops and gaming systems. There's plenty of seating at the countertop-height table when you want to tackle a writing assignment and other seating and small table arrangements when you just want to relax. 

Use of the Teen Lounge does not require a reservation or a WPLD library card, but users need to sign in at the Youth Services Desk.
