Welcome to the Teen Center!

Please Help With a National Survey

The Institute of Museum and Library Services & the School of Library and Information Science, San Jose State University are asking youth to share with them what they want in their library experiences, and we’d appreciate your participation. The survey is easy to complete and confidential.

If you are between the ages of 13 and 19, this is the place to socialize, do homework, and find books or other materials. If you have a library card in good standing, it’s also a place to use the Internet.
