Collections for Teens

Our collection in True North picks up where the Children’s Department leaves off, and sees readers from Jr. High School through adulthood. As our collection covers a wide range of ages, our books vary in content and maturity level. While we invite our readers to check out all of our books, parents and/or guardians with concerns about content have the responsibility to determine their own children’s access to library resources.
