Teens

Winter Reading is going on NOW!

Winter reading goes digital! Read and log books, and complete online challenges to be entered in weekly prize drawings for chances to win gift certificates to La Grange area businesses.

We encourage readers of all ages to broaden their world perspective by discovering new authors from the diverse collection of #OwnVoices literature. #OwnVoices books are written by authors from marginalized or under-represented groups, and feature characters and experiences that match their expressed identities.

Teen #OwnVoices Book Lists!

Meet Miss Nicole, Teen Services Librarian

What I do at the Library: I am in charge of ordering teen books, movies, and music, planning teen programs, and visiting teen classes.

What I like to do outside the library: I live in La Grange with my boyfriend, where we enjoy activities like biking, reading, gaming, going to the movies, or just hanging out downtown with friends.

I like books that are character-driven, thought provoking, and fast paced (no twenty page descriptions of meals and/or clothing, please). This is why I mostly read Young Adult books.

What I want to ask you: I’m new, so stop by and say hello, suggest a book, suggest a program, or just tell me a little about yourself. I can’t wait to meet the teens of La Grange!
