  • Promoting ideas, reading, programming and expression by and for teens by creating bulletin boards and displays in the young adult area.
  • Recommending books, movies, music CDs and magazines for the YA collection.
  • Creating an inviting teen area in the library.

What Will I Get Out Of It?

  • Having a say in materials & programs for teens at Canton Public Library.
