Summer rocks at the library!


How long before boredom sets in on those long summer days with no school? It won't if you plan to spend some of those days at the library! Click on the button below to see the teen summer brochure and check out all the awesome events happening at the library this summer.

Teen Tuesdays

Join us in the Community Room at the library 4-5 p.m. on Tuesdays for Teen Tuesdays. We’ll have an activity, share a snack and talk about new young adult books. Everyone in grades 6-12 is welcome. We’ve had dance parties, indoor campouts, decorated doughnuts and more! It’s a fun way to make new friends and spend an hour after school.

Teen Advisory Board

The Teen Advisory Board, TAB for short, is a group of teenagers who want to make the Derby Public Library a better place for teens. Tell us what’s happening in your world. What’s the hottest book, movie or music right now? What programs does the library need? TAB meets once a month to plan library events such as the teen summer reading program, Teen Zine productions, and the programs for the upcoming session, as well as just having fun with other library-loving teens.
