Teens

Welcome to the Teen Page!

The library’s Young Adult Room is intended for use by teens in grades 7-12.  Its purpose is to centralize the resources, events, programs, tools and information you need, while also providing a safe, welcoming space that is uniquely yours.  It is a place to get the things you need and it’s a place to show off your work.  It’s a place to socialize or to find solitude.  And we do take suggestions, so if there is something you’d like to see the teen room do or have please contact Meg, the Teen Librarian and she will do everything she can to make it happen.  Info below.

ONGOING EVENT:   Teen Visual Art Exhibit 

Cape Cod teens are invited to submit visual artwork in any medium (photography, painting, drawing, collage, digital art etc.) to be displayed in the YA room at the Falmouth Public Library.

If you are able to lend us your work framed or otherwise ready to hang, that’s great.  However, if you don’t have a frame, or you need a little help making your art gallery-ready, don’t worry – we can help you! 

To submit work / ask questions, email the teen librarian, Meg Krohn at mkrohn@falmouthpubliclibrary.org
