Teens (ages 13 – 19) have their own dedicated area at the Medicine Hat Public Library. “Youthopia” is made by teens, for teens. We have thousands of Young Adult resources – books, movies, TV shows, music, magazines, video games, etc. – that you can access from home or at the Library with your free card. If you haven’t visited in a while, make a point to stop by and rediscover your library.
We are so excited to offer new and exciting in-person programming for Teens (ages 13 - 19) ranging from anime nights, crafting, videogames, and book clubs. See below for details. Registration is required for a majority of programs and masks must be worn for in-person programs.
