Library services for Teens includes activities and resources for teens from 13 to 18. The Library offers workshops, events, books, technology, and librarians specializing in teen services to support teens on their lifelong learning and leadership journeys. We have a dedicated Teen Central room and staff at the Central Library, and we have youth computer labs at library branches across Austin.
