Terryville Public Library has so much to offer our teen patrons. We have all of the expected teen resources such as fantastic fiction and nonfiction books, resources to help with research papers, test prep, college prep, and career guidance. We also offer so much more! The library strives to be a hub for teens to connect with each other socially and participate in many different activities.
Each month we offer several fun and active programs that focus on arts and crafts. These programs are a great way for teens to explore their creativity and learn new skills. We’ve hosted paint nights, jewelry making events, sewing crafts, and other activities. Teens who participate in these programs get an opportunity to express themselves and create something unique while meeting new people.
We also have an active Anime Club. Anime Club is a popular group that meets each month where teens can gather to watch and discuss anime. Anime is a Japanese animation style that has gained popularity all over the world, and the library is the perfect place to discover new shows and meet like-minded people. It’s a great opportunity to socialize and build friendships while exploring similar interests.
We have an extensive manga and graphic novel collection. Many of the library’s manga inspired the shows that our teens watch during Anime Club. Manga are Japanese comic books that are read from right to left and cover a wide range of genres, from action and adventure to romance and drama. Graphic novels are similar to traditional comic books but often have a more complex storyline. Graphic novels and manga are super popular and we are always enhancing our collection to meet the needs of our teens.
