Teen Services connects youth, ages 12-18, with free resources such as library materials, creative programs, websites and databases, college and career prep, and volunteer opportunities. 

Applications for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Teen Summer Volunteer program are now closed. 

Have you visited your local library branch? The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library has many services just for teens. We offer:

  • Study areas within the branches
  • Books, movies and magazines on all different types of subject, both in the branch and online
  • Free computer use and WiFi access at every branch
  • Friendly library staff to help guide you to the books and resources you need
  • Programs and activities that focus on literacy, workforce development, and educational success

Do you have fines? We completely understand and we have programs available to help you pay down your fines, so you can continue using the library. Simply ask a Librarian for more information.
