Teen Zine

The Teen Zine is a bi-annual publication that features writing, photos, book lists, artwork, interviews, and articles by or about teens at the library. This mini magazine is designed, edited, and assembled by a team of teen volunteers. It is shared with schools, administrators, public officials, youth advocates, and read by people from all over the community—even people on another continent!

Pick up a copy at the library or view it here online. See if you or someone you know is featured!

To see more about how we make the Teen Zine visit our poster on the Teen Zine process. For a chance to be featured in the Teen Zine, participate in our annual writing and art contests and attend teen programs.
