YA Temporarily Closed for Heath and Safety

The Teen Republic, has made the tough decision to not reopen our room at this time; due to the nature of our space, we can not adequately follow recommended health and safety guidelines. For ease of access we've moved the two collections that were inside our room elsewhere; YA GN can now be found on the first floor next to adult graphic novel, and YA DVD can now be found directly outside our room between YA audio book and YA NF.

Even though our doors are closed, we're working to bring you a full slate of online summer programs! Stay posted for details!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact our manager.



As the Teen Republic is designed for teens, we may show PG-13 films. Since that designation is so broad it’s up to guardians and kiddos to decide if any given film is appropriate.

Movies are shown Wednesdays at 5pm and Saturdays at 1pm. 

No movies in May, June, or July.

Join us as we turn the Teen Republic into a mini-makerspace! What’s a makerspace? It’s a space where you make! Each month we’ll do something a little different, from coding to crafting, building to bots, we’ll try it all!

For more details on makerspaces, check out the library’s very own makerspace, STEAM Central! They’re located on the lower level of the Stephens Central Library.

Want to play D&D, Starfinder, and other awesome tabletop roleplaying games? We’ll show you the basics, and set you up on your very first quest!

This program is intended for newer players, and revolving players. Instead of running  extended campaigns, our goal is to share the fun with as many people as possible and set you up for your own adventures!

This isn’t your average book club: there’s no required reading or discussion questions! Instead, each month we’ll give you the inside scoop on the latest books and provide you with personalized recommendations! We may even have special crafts and games (all book-themed, of course!) planned for the evening! Be sure to join us and your fellow book-lovers for an awesome time!

This club is devoted to all things art and animation! ​Whether you love traditional Japanese animation or doodling 4-panel comics, this is the place for you! We’re all about celebrating art in all of its many forms. Sometimes we’ll watch an awesome show, other times we’ll host an art contest, or maybe we’ll chat fandoms; it all depends on what you want to do!
