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.
