The Jefferson Public Library is starting a Teen Special Collection. These are books relating to topics teens in our community deal with, topics like anxiety, bullying, stress, sexuality, and mental health. Books in this collection are not required to be checked out (because if they were, they'd not likely be checked out at all), but readers are asked to return them in one month. This provides aid while maintaining privacy. There are so many topics to we wish to cover as there are many different things our teens may be dealing with. If you want to help by purchasing one or more of these books, please visit our Amazon wish list.
Any questions, please call 541-327-3826.
Thank you!
