The Young Adult Department of the Library is specifically designed to serve students in grades 6-12. Here teens and ‘tweens will find a large selection of books, audiobooks, college catalogs and guidebooks, and magazines.
The young adult librarian provides young adults with suggestions on what to read for pleasure as well as help finding materials for school assignments.
The Library also offers teens and tweens the opportunity to download eBooks and audiobooks 24 hours a day, seven days a week to their personal electronic devices. To get started, click on the “download” icon at the upper right corner of the Library’s webpage, enter the Nassau Digital Doorway, and select YA or classic eBook and audiobook titles to download. Be sure to have your library card in hand.
Freegal Music is the free-and-legal music service available to YAs and all Garden City Public Library patrons. Teens can download five songs per week, which are theirs to keep. In addition, Freegal users can stream three hours of music per day.
The YA Department offers a wide range of programs generously funded by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library. Click on Teen & Tween News to learn more about what’s available for young people, or go to Eventkeeper to register for programs.
