Stuff For Teens!

The West Bend Library offers a wide variety of books, media, and programming geared toward teens and preteens. Scroll down for more information.

August Reading Program

Teens are invited to earn prizes for reading during the month of August! Download or pick up a reading record, then color in one icon for every 20 minutes of reading. When you're done, you will receive a prize bag and scratch off ticket. Scratch off your card and see what you win - it could be free pizza, a free sub, or a total surprise! Download your reading record here. Prizes begin August 8.

Summer Volunteering

Virtual volunteering will continue! Stay tuned for updates.

Teen Events

In-person events will resume once it's safe to do so. In the meantime, follow us on YouTube, Instagram, Soundcloud and Facebook for news and activities!
