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.
Each month during the school year, teens in Grades 7-12 can come to an anime club meeting to watch 2 episodes of an anime series, hold an anime/manga-themed raffle, and eat pocky!
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!
Movies & Music
The Suffern Library has a large music and movie collection which is available for FREE. Search the Library Catalog for your favorite artists. You can also download music and videos for FREE using your library card.
Need help with school? The Library has 14 databases including encyclopedias, magazines, atlases, biographies, newspapers, language help, science help…and so much more. Use your Suffern Library card to get started.
All teen events require advance registration and are open to residents of the Ramapo Central School District. We ask that you please register online. For Lock-Ins, parents/guardians are required to walk the attending teen into the Library and sign the permission slip.
If you have questions, please contact Ms. Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 845-357-1237.
