The YA Department of the Library serves teenagers in middle and high school. In addition to collections of fiction and non-fiction, including graphic novels, manga, audiobooks, downloadable ebooks, we offer a variety of monthly events for teens (listed below). For book suggestions, check out staff picks, book reviews written by Beverly teens, or email Allison at email@example.com.
Teens, this is your space! Get involved — attend events, make suggestions, and check out all kinds of materials we have to offer.
