We believe in creating a safe, welcoming, and educational resource for young adults.
This philosophy is supported by an emphasis on HOMAGO (Hanging Out, Messing Around, Geeking Out) in both our teen space and programming. Teens are welcome to provide suggestions, give feedback, and help build the direction of their experience here at the library.

The goal of our teen services is to assist teens. We are also dedicated to providing resources and support for community agencies, organizations, and schools that serve teens as well. The Forest Park Public Library is committed to becoming a vital and consistent partner. This includes, but is not limited to, procuring materials for classes, making presentations, leading orientations, or hosting activities.
Contact us if you would like to schedule a librarian visit to your location, or if you would like to tour our teen space.
We look forward to hearing from you!
