At the Forest Park Public Library, we believe that to create a great space for teens, you have to relate and listen to teens.
We’re ready to listen and help you become your best self, while providing a safe and entertaining environment.


Leadership Training

Joining a library club or volunteering provides you with skills you can use to put on a resume or get leadership positions at school!

Community Involvement

Get to know teens from Forest Park and also our neighboring towns through clubs, events, and even online gaming.

Have Your Voice Heard

Teens are the voice behind most of our teen programming. You have a say in our materials, activities, and events!


We are currently not accepting any new volunteers but when we are able to, we’ll let you know here so we can connect you with an opportunity that fits your interests and skills. We offer a variety of task assisting opportunities as well as a chance to be a Lounge Leader or a Service Club member.

Young Adult Lounge Leaders

Become a Library Leader and help shed a light on what teens need and want. Members of the board have the opportunity to plan events, suggest changes, and earn volunteer hours.

The YA Service Club

Interested in service but don’t know where to start? Need community service hours? Join The YA Service Club! Forest Park teens are invited so share ideas on service projects, and then come together to pull them off.


YA Lounge Chats

This monthly meeting is when librarians check in with teens! Hear about updates to your space and services, while also having your voice heard.

Test Proctoring Services

Students in need of proctoring services are encouraged to fill out this form or ask a librarian for information.

A Listening Ear

Come by and talk to any of the YA Services staff if you have anything to get off your chest.
