TeenTober is a nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October that aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways teen services help young adults learn new skills, and fuel their passions in and outside the library. As part of TeenTober, we created a virtual calming room. We invite you to click here and enjoy. It's important to take time for yourself!
