Library services for 11-16 year olds

All Cambridgeshire Libraries have special spaces just for teenagers. You can discover great reads, and find help to boost your well-being and confidence. In larger libraries, you can also meet your friends.

We have computers you can use for free. You simply need a library card and PIN to log on.

We also have free WiFi.

Great reads

  • JF/YA
  • YA+
  • Manga/graphic novels
  • Non-fiction
  • Digital

Cambridgeshire libraries have made Reading Well for Teens collections available to borrow.

For help with homework and coursework use Encyclopaedia Britannia for students.

Staying safe online

Remember: never give out personal details and don't believe everything you read on the Internet! 

For some really useful advice on staying safe online take a look at Think U Know, NSPCC online safety information and Childnet.

The UK Safer Internet Centre has a guide for parents and carers.
