Teens @ the Milton Public Library

The Teen Space at the Milton Public Library is for students in grades 6 - 12. There are three computers for browsing the web, checking your Facebook, playing games, watching videos, typing up papers, or using the library's research databases for homework. We have books, graphic novels, video games, and magazines; if you're looking for something but don't find it, feel free to make a suggestion! The library hosts events for teens every month (see below for what's coming next). The library also has music, movies, plus lots of downloadable media, including ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, magazines, and music you can download and keep for free! You can also find MPL's Teen Services on Facebook - Like us to stay caught up with the latest news.
