Our teen zone is an area of the library reserved for library users ages 13 to 19. The Teen Zone (or Bat Cave, at Centennial Library) has a broad selection of reading materials -- nonfiction and biographies, YA fiction and graphic novels, and even movies and video games! Each library also provides an Xbox One and Playstation 4 to play during visits.

Teens are welcome to get involved in library activity to advocate for clubs and programs they would like to see become a part of teen services. Contact youth services at 432-742-7445 for more information, or stop by our Youth Services desk at either library location!
