There are plenty of things for you at the library if you are a teenager or young adult.
- All our libraries have computers and if you have joined the library you can use them for free. You can check your emails, type up school/college work or look at your favourite sites.
- Libraries contain lots of useful information - from GCSE and exam guides to how to write CV's and what to do at a job interview. We also have books and information on subjects like health, money and where to go for advice as well as stuff on music, sport, other hobbies and leisure interests.
- All our libraries have collections of stories by popular teenage authors. Everything from Jacqueline Wilson and Philip Pullman.
- You can borrow CD's for a small charge and some libraries have videos, DVD's and Playstation and Xbox games for hire.
