Welcome to the Teen Space

Here you’ll find helpful information about the library, resources to help with homework, job hunting and applying for college. If you would like to be notified about upcoming Teen Programs via email click here.

Stop by the library and you’ll find more of the same, plus a separate space for those in 6th - 12th grade with books, graphic novels, video games, magazines, board games as well as tables and couches for homework, lounging, chatting and more. Upstairs is a quiet area with research areas and study rooms open to all ages.

Not only are there special books just for teens, there is specific staff as well. Stop by and say hello to Nicole, your Young Adult Librarian or Jenna. The other youth services staff are always happy to assist when we are not around as well. Also, be sure to follow us on Instagram at burlingtonlibrary teens.

Featured Book 

The Rest of Us Just Live Here
by Patrick Ness


What if you aren’t the Chosen One?

The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

I've enjoyed some of Ness's books in the past so I was excited to check out a book with a concept as fun as this one. It did not disappoint!
