Teen Happenings at the Library

At Springfield Public Library, teen programming starts at age 12.  There are opportunities for readers and gamers.  Introverts and the exuberantly loud are welcome.  Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers enjoy.  Teen programs are designed to provide a comfortable space for you to meet new people and make new friends or hang out with old friends.  Along the way you'll think, you'll laugh, you'll learn, and you'll have fun.

There are two regular activities open to teens. 

  • Teen Tuesdays (ages 12+)
  • Book Club (ages 13+)

These programs almost never require pre-registration.

If you have any questions, email the Teen Services Librarian, Librarian Cara at

Teen Book Club

In Teen Book Club, we talk about books in general. Come and discuss good books whether or not you've read the month's chosen title. Teen book club is open to teens ages 13 & up and meets every second Thursday at 4:30pm.

Teen Volunteer Opportunities

The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) meets monthly to brainstorm and select possible Teen Tuesday themes and programs and also come regularly to Tuesday events.  Teens must be 13 to apply to join TAB.
