Welcome to the Teen Department of the Woodbury Public Library!
The Teen Area of the Woodbury Public Library is a great place for teens to meet with friends, do homework, attend programs and browse through a variety of materials to check out.
While in the Teen area, you can choose from the latest fiction, non-fiction, and graphic novels. You’ll also find award winning collections such as Connecticut’s Nutmeg Book Awards for Middle & High School, YALSA’s Teen Choice Books, and resources for career and college planning. New books check out for two weeks, and all others check out for three weeks. Audio books circulate for three weeks; DVDs check out for one week.
Monthly programs include Drop-in DIY, Girls Who Code Club (grades 5-12), Teen Advisory Board (grades 9-12) and Saturday programming.
Do you have a suggestion or comment? Let us know.
