Teen Xscape

A place to be you

Our Teen Xscape area is located on the library’s first floor and is a teens-only space to read, relax, use the library’s wi-fi, work on homework and–most importantly–connect with others.

Here’s what you’ll find in the space:

Comfortable and fun places
to read, work and lounge

Need a welcoming space to do homework, hang out with friends, or just read? Relax in our fun and cozy bungee chairs, curl up on our colorful rug, or grab a throw cushion! Or use our regular tables within the space for uninterrupted homework time.

Events Board

Our whiteboard fills you in on all the events happening this week.


Our collection includes the newest titles in teen fiction and non-fiction, and you’ll find them all grouped on one shelf at the front of the space. Have a book you’d like us to add?  Email Joyce at homanj@cclsys.org with the title.

In addition, browse our extensive collection of teen books grouped by genre, including Mystery, Science Fiction, and Series.

Graphic Novels and Manga

Are you a Marvel or My Hero Academia fan?  Check out our shelves of titles of your favorite fandoms as well as the latest manga and standalone titles!

Video Games

Many recent games for Xbox One and PS4 can be found in this area and checked out with a library card. Visit our Events page on this website regularly for dates of our Minecraft and Fortnite tournaments as well as other gaming events.
