Teen Book Resources: Looking for books about Mental Health, Gender/Sexuality, Social Justice, or other topics? This list has got you covered. The call numbers on the left side of the page can help you locate books in the teen room without asking for help! If you need a quick refresher on how call numbers work, you can ask our Teen Librarian to point out where fiction, nonfiction, or graphic novels are located and how they're numbered or lettered. Once you've found the book, you can use your library card and PIN to check out your items privately using our self-check kiosk near the front desk.
