The Bloomfield Public Library Teen Area is where Teens will find a wide collection of fiction and nonfiction books chosen for their appeal, as well as two dedicated teen computers. Through a variety of programs offered during the year, our teen librarian highlights the collection while strengthening habits of reading and library use, supporting independent learning, and developing imagination.
Special Teen Activities
