Tweens and Teens

Young Adult Area and Collection

Our cozy young adult area features a wild patterned rug, new cafe tables and chairs, two floor rockers and two computers. Hot new Young Adult titles are displayed on the rounded bookshelf near the front of the YA area. Playaway and CD audio titles can be found at the south end by the windows and Teen magazines are shelved there too. The Young Adult book shelves have four shelves of current teen fiction. Our Young Adult graphic novels can be found at the front of this bookshelf.

Young Adult Reading Program

Since 2012 Kilgore has offered a teen reading program during the summer months.  The Young Adult program is for incoming sixth through twelfth graders.  Each book read counts towards entries to win weekly prizes and to win backpacks full of themed items, books and gift cards.

Summer Programs

During the months of June and July the library offers selected programs of interest for teens in our community. “TAH” or “teens after hours” programs are special events for young adults outside our normal operating hours.
