Teens in a CircleWelcome teen visitors! Since you’ve arrived here @ wtmlib.info, you know that you can visit us virtually as well as at our Main Street scene. You might be surprised, though, by all that there is for you here:

  • If you consider yourself a Reading Fool, you can easily learn about new and exciting releases, and exchange opinions with like-minded readers.
  • We have events ranging from crafts to comedy shows to just plain hilarious fun – check out the Teen Scene.
  • If you like being involved in creative and rewarding activities, and offering input on your teen collection, consider joining the Teen Advisory Board.
  • We also provide you with solid resources to help you study, conduct research and prepare for your next level of education.

So, as long as you’re here, take a look around …

Did you know that you can also visit us on Facebook (Miriam Neiman WTML TeenLibrarian)?

Teen Read WeekTM ~ Teens' Top Ten Titles

Teen Read Week Theme 2014Teen Read Week was celebrated October 12-18, 2014. The theme was "Turn Dreams Into Reality." What do you dream of doing and being? The library can help you achieve those dreams! Talk to a librarian, and we’ll help you find the information you need. But Teen Read Week is more than just a theme. It encourages teens to read just for the fun of it, not just because you have a reading assignment for English class. Have you been reading the Teens’ Top Ten nominees?
