The Teen Department is where kids in high school or soon-to-be in high school can come to read about subjects that spark their curiosity and speak to their interests. Come in and browse our books (fiction and non-fiction), audio books, magazines, music CDs, and graphic novels!
Introducing a NEW program for teens (ages 12-18)!
The Gunn Memorial Library and the Hickory Stick Bookshop are teaming up to host a
Teen Writer’s Workshop!
The Teen Writer’s Workshop will meet every Tuesday
starting October 17- November 14th from 6-7:30 pm at the library (snacks provided).
Teens in the Washington community are encouraged to join our workshops for an opportunity to express their creativity through writing! We will explore all types of writing styles and local authors will make guest appearances to share their experience in the writing world.
At the end of the series, our young writers will have the chance to perform their work at an open-mic night @ the Hickory Stick!

If you are a teen in the Washington community, join our group of kids just like you to share ideas and create programs that speak to your interests! Starting in the Fall of 2017, our Teen Advisory Board will be looking for a group of kids ages 12-18 to talk about books, music, television, and everything else that influences your life and speaks to your curiosity.
