Young Adult Department
The West Springfield Public Library is firmly committed to providing materials and services to our local teen population.
We always welcome the energy and creativity you bring to the library!
We have a large up-to-date collection of popular fiction titles as well as a generous supply of manga and graphic novels.
The Teen Room also includes magazines, DVDs, music CDs, books on CD, playaways and an XBOX 360.
Need to do your homework? We have computers and a printer (bring your library card!) to help you get it done.
We also have several databases and research tools to make doing your homework easier.
We have chairs and tables with plug-in stations to charge your device, too!
Come check out your Teen Room where...
you can read, relax, do your homework, color, or simply daydream...
Keep in touch with the latest with West Side social media!
