Our Teen Collection includes hot-off-the press new titles, including books on the current Dorothy Canfield Fisher and Green Mountain Book Award lists. We have young adult dvds, audiobooks, and music. Teens in grades 6 & up can use our new iPads in the library and if you are sixteen or older you can read a book on one of our library Kindles. We have Teen Reading programs over the summer, a DCF Book Club, Movie Nights, a Mystery Night every fall, and other programs throughout the year. Teen volunteers can help out at our summer book sale, can write book reviews for our website, and can help out during children’s programs.
