Teens

Library services for teens are overseen by the Youth Services department at the Lake Bluff Public Library. We offer popular, high-interest, and well-reviewed materials as well as year-round programming and volunteer opportunities for teens in grades 8-12.

We strive to connect all teens with materials that interest, inspire, and engage them, as well as provide a safe, supportive space where they can be themselves.
