Teens

The Library provides online and physical spaces designed just for teens! Staff can help with research, studying and learning new skills. From songwriting to history, to learning to code, there is something for every young mind at the Library. During a stage of life that can be challenging, the Library provides a welcoming, social environment.

Here is how your gift can help:

  • $60 can buy an eBook or Audiobook. Teens can explore staff recommendations for the best titles in young adult fiction.
  • $75 can deliver one session of an online program for teens. From exploring the world of Artificial Intelligence, to acting techniques or even skills for landing your first job, the Library offers programs designed specifically for teen audiences.
  • $80 can provide board and digital games to enhance teen programs and spaces. Dedicated zones for teens within Calgary Public Library locations provide safe spaces for teens to study, connect with each other and mentors, and develop new skills.
  • $100 can purchase supplies for the Teen Tech Lab. This space supports connected, social learning where volunteers share their own expertise in creative technology through one-on-one or small group mentoring.
