Are you in grades 7-12 and looking for volunteer hours? Perhaps you want to have a say in what teen materials the Library purchases or what events we have. Or maybe you just want free food! Either way, join the Suffern Teen Advisory Council.

Book Discussion

Anime Club

We have a brand new club for teens! Each month, we will watch an episode of an anime, then discuss our favorite anime and manga, talk about anime and manga news and vote for possibilities for the next month’s meeting.

Teen Lock-Ins

Each month once the Library is closed, the teens get to come back and do special activities with their friends. There is a theme for each month’s lock-in and we serve food! Once a year, we host an overnight lock-in for teens who complete the Summer Reading Program.
