Programs and services especially for teens!



Adventures in Gaming first day

Teens may join Adventures in Gaming with Bill Sindelar Wednesdays from 1-4 p.m. June-August, 2017. You may stay for all or part of the sessions, whatever best fits your schedule! Bill has hosted board game and card game sessions at his home for over 30 years, and last summer, came to the Cresco Public Library to debut Adventures in Gaming. It was so popular he is returning to the library again this summer! Tell your friends, and join Adventures in Gaming!



Teen Read Week takes place once per year.


Read With Pride   The Outsiders turns 50

We have special book displays to highlight newsworthy events of potential interest to teens and young adults, including GLBT Pride Month (at left), and the 50th anniversary of the book credited with creating the 'Young Adult' genre, 'The Outsiders' by SE Hinton, in 2017 (at right).








 The teen room at the Cresco library offers teens the latest in teen fiction -- award winning teen books (including the Iowa Teen Award winners and Teens’ Top Ten award winners), graphic novels, comic books, and non-fiction books on current issues.  Book series are labeled to show how they can be read to enhance meaning.
