Teen's Department
Welcome to the Teen Department
Teens are welcome to enjoy their very own space at the Matawan-Aberdeen Public Library. There are books, magazines, graphic novels, and comfy seating to enjoy.

Books & Resources Volunteering
In the Teen Department there is a large range of Books & Resources available to young adults. There are new books, graphic novels, and summer reading books located under the windows. There is also a manga section and an ever growing nonfiction collection with topics like baking, stress relief, and astronomy. Come and volunteer with us at the library! Teen in grades 6th - 12th are welcome to join our Teen Advisory Board (TAB) to gain volunteering hours. TAB meets the last Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Teen Place. At those meetings, each teen earns an hour of volunteering as well as providing us with information on what teens like to read and programs they want to do at the library. They also decorate the teen space and plan volunteering days to earn more volunteering hours. In May, the library starts accepting applications for volunteering during Summer Reading. This is open to 7th graders and up.
Student Resources Page Summer Reading
Teens can find online databases and interactive tools to help them with homework or even learn a new language. From high school student doing book reports to kids learning the basics, there is something for everyone on the page. For more online resources, check out the adult Electronic Resources page. Our Teen Summer Reading Program starts the first Saturday after school ends for the academic year. Teens can sign up and earn raffle tickets for the books they read. Each week a winner is called and one lucky teen wins something fun! There are also programs just for teens. In previous years we have done painting, pottery making, baking, etc.
