Teens (6th-12th grade)

Teens are always welcome at the library!

The library offers independence, excitement, identity, and acceptance. We guarantee the confidentiality of your usage and encourage teens to explore all the subjects, hot topics, and genres with privacy. Librarians are on hand to instruct teens on how to use library resources independently.

PCL offers volunteer opportunities. We allow teens chances to assert their independence.

Try out free programs and classes just for teens. We welcome feedback and suggestions for new events. Reading can help teens to discover possible futures for themselves. Therefore, our new Teen Advisory Board can help teens thoroughly explore their potential. Additionally, programs allowing teens to share their interests with others can strengthen their self-esteem and allow them to explore other possibilities.

Adults (Ages 18+)

Join us this summer for a fantastic adventure through the world of books and activities! Dive into captivating stories, explore new genres, and connect with the community by attending various programs. Whether you want to read at the beach or a local park or engage in a lively discussion during our summer reading activities, we will have something for everyone.

The first 140 participants will receive a Summer Reading Club goody bag while supplies last.

At your library, we believe in the power of reading and its impact on all generations. For children, reading opens doors to new worlds, sparks their imagination, and helps them develop important communication and storytelling skills. Even before they can read and write, children can immerse themselves in the magic of letters, learning the foundations of literacy that will shape their future.

Thank You, Sponsors, partners, and donors!
