New to town? New to the library?  Looking for things for you or your teens to do? Then look no further! 

Located on the second floor of the Stephens Central Library, the Teen Republic is the exclusive teen spot in town. We’re only open to patrons in grades 6-12; no parents, no little siblings, just teens!

Our hours are normally the same as those of the Stephens Central Library: Monday through Thursday 9am-9pm, Friday 9am-6pm, and Saturday 9am-5pm. Sometimes we may have to close for a special event, but don't worry - we'll always post if that has to happen!

So what do we do? Well, we're a library so of course we have a growing collection of young adult books, graphic novels, and movies available to all patrons, regardless of age! But we also have lots of cool events every week: robotics, anime, movie nights, video games, and so much more! Unless otherwise noted, programs are designed for patrons in grades 6-12. Be sure to check out the "Things to Do” tab to see what we're doing this month! 

For more information, feel free to stop by in person, email (, Facebook us (TGCL Teen Republic),  or call (325-655-7321, ext 1128)!

We're eager to improve our programming, and even start some new stuff! But we have an important question to ask... What days of the week, and times of the day work best for you and your family?

You can let us know in person, email (, Facebook us (TGCL Teen Republic),  or call (325-655-7321, ext 1128)! 

Even if you aren't a teen/have a teen, let us know; we'll pass the information along to improve all library programming!



There are a few occasions this summer where we will have to close the Teen Republic. Why?  So we (and you!) can attend some other awesome programs!
