Coming Soon: Our Teen Collection is getting a new look!

Fri, 02/12/2021 - 4:33pm -- Emily S

We are very excited to announce that our Teen Collection will soon be getting a new look! We will be renaming it Middle Grade.

The Teen collection has always been meant for the upper end of the age range that we serve here in the Children’s Room, however the name ‘Teen’ can be misleading. The books, audiobooks, and graphic novels in our Teen collection have always been intended for kids ages 9-12. Renaming the collection to Middle Grade helps clarify the intended audience for these materials.

Let us answer some questions you might have about the renaming!
