Calling all teens! Have you discovered the Vortex yet?  The Vortex is our unique space specifically designed for teens in grades 6–12 to read, study or hang out with friends. You can also play board games and video games, use the computers and study rooms or attend events. If you’re entering sixth grade in the fall or if you just haven’t visited yet, head up to our 2nd floor (past the video games and vinyl records) to visit the space. Watch our short video below to learn more!
