Welcome to the Teen Department at the Vestvia Hills Library in the Forest! This area is designed for students in grades 6-12 and collects all of the books, comics, manga, graphic novels, movies, TV shows, music and video games you could possibly want or need … usually! We host fun events on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, ranging from writing groups and craft events to video game tournaments and fandom nights. Whatever you like we have something for you!

Drop by and hang out, play on a computer, do homework or attend an event. Also, say hi to the librarians … we’re pretty awesome!
