Welcome to the Teen Scene
Teen F.O.R.T. at HPL
Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Homewood Library, a new space on the second floor has been created for the teens of the community. It's called The F.O.R.T.--Friends of Remarkable Teens--a dedicated walled area for 12- to 18-year-olds to read, study, talk and learn.
Resources include a teen-oriented collection as well as computers and iPads, music listening station, a DIY project table and gaming area.
The Grand Opening of the F.O.R.T. will be held Wednesday, Aug.9 at 6:30 p.m. Come take a look at our new space!
