Teens and Tweens

​Why Hang Out with Us?

There’s nothing quite like having a space just for you, where you have an influence in shaping the place where you relax and spend time with your friends. Here at Monona Library, your voice matters, as we want to build a fun community space for tweens and teens of Monona. Here’s how you can make the most of your space here at the library:
  • Relax with friends on comfortable chairs after browsing for good books
  • Use computers set up just for you
  • Work on projects together at a café table or in the comfortable booth

Tween Zone


This collection contains books and materials for 9- to 12-year-olds. With a donation from the Gregory Family, we created an inviting space for tweens and stocked it with graphic novels, mysteries, magazines, and fiction. Additional materials can be found in the Children's Room, including non-fiction books, graphic novels, and audio books.
