Have you ever rushed to the library first thing after school to grab up a copy of the latest teen book release, hot off the presses, only to find all the copies have been checked out and you need to go onto the waitlist? It is seriously the worst.
Well, have we got news for you! We've installed a new Teen Marketplace, chock full of the newest and hottest teen fiction, nonfiction, and audiobooks. We have tons of copies in easy to browse shelves, so you can easily find the latest best seller or discover the next sleeper hit.
(Don't worry: we still have our awesome and extensive Teen Fiction and Nonfiction collections, now located by our main fiction collection. With even more room, too!)
So come by and check out the new Teen Marketplace. It's chock full of all the newest teen books just for you. We can't wait to hear what you think!

Calling all writers! NaNoWriMo is in full swing here at The Hub! If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. That's write right, we're taking up the challenge of writing an entire novel in one month. That's 1 novel in 30 days! That's 50,000 words in 1 month! Whew...
Our teen writing club members, Inklings, have officially started their novels at our November meeting on 11/4. But if you're a teen writer and you want to join us in this literary endeavor, sign up here for NaNoWriMo and email us your username at and we'll add you to our classroom!
The winner of our NaNoWriMo classroom will get a very special prize... a signed copy of Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl which was originally a NaNoWriMo novel! Read a pep talk from Rainbow Rowell here where she talks about her experience participating!
If you need inspiration, want to talk through your novel, or have questions about NaNoWriMo, feel free to email us at or come by The Hub!
We'll also have write-in sessions on Mondays and Thursdays in November from 7-9 p.m. at The Hub if you need a place to write!
Best of luck, writers!
