    Just for Teens

    Welcome to the teen page of the Dauphin County Library System, where you will find information about our young adult services along with links to a number of educational and recreational websites.

    Teens find your place @ the library. Book collections, computers, seating areas and more are provided just for you. The Dauphin County Library System is also expanding the use of technology to further meet the needs of today's teens. You can text a question, email a question, or chat live with a librarian online.

    Vote for your favorite books

    Teens’ Top Ten is a "teen choice" list. Last spring, teens in book groups at schools and public libraries around the country nominated their favorite books to create this list of 24 great reads. Visit any DCLS library to "check out" all of the books on the list.
