The Athenaeum

The Athenaeum, aka The Teen Wing, is the library’s new space for students in 6th-12th grade. In addition to housing the YA collection, it also features desktop computers and a whiteboard for doing homework, a lounge area for watching movies or playing video games, and a Maker Bar where teens can enjoy art and STEM activities.

The Athenaeum is also home to the Digital Media Lab: a space where aspiring filmmakers, musicians, and digital artists can hone their skills and create unique digital content.
