The Teen Department at the Salem Public Library strives to provide middle and high school students with print and electronic resources that help them succeed in school, prepare them for college and employment, and enrich their lives with new and exciting ideas and concepts.
The Salem Public Library Teen Web is designed especially for teenagers and provides easy access to the library’s most useful online resources for middle and high school students as well as teen-oriented web links and homework help sites. Many teens are into coding. If you like coding please try these websites. Check out the teen programs at our program calendar! We hope to see you soon!
Our Teen Librarian, David Butler, is dedicated to selecting age-appropriate resources and planning programming that will increase knowledge and expand horizons.
We are excited to offer programming that emphasizes STEM, creativity, and literacy. During the school year, our programs include a Teen Tech Maker Space that gives our teens an opportunity to work with LEGO Mindstorms and coding, occasional teen mystery nights, and craft programs. Please email our teen librarian if you would like to suggest a title, resource, or program for our library.
