Teens (ages 13 – 18) 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.
If you have questions about anything teen related, contact Michelle B., Teen Services Coordinator.

Teens (ages 13 – 18) are lucky enough to have the Library all to themselves for two nights a month! After the Library closes on alternate Fridays, teens are invited to themed nights that range from videogaming to anime to improv. To see what’s coming up take a look at the Hang Out program booklet.
