Middle School

The Teen Room @Cary is the space in the library specifically for middle school and high school students in grades 6-12. Even though the library is closed to the public, staff in the Teen Room continue to make this the virtual library home for tweens and teens. We are constantly adding new books to our BeTween and Teen collections that might be of interest to you. If you are looking for some suggestions of books to read, fill out an AskTeen form. Tell us what grade you are in and provide us with some details about what you like to read (or what you do not like to read), and we will send you some ideas and even put together a bundle of books for you to pick up through our curbside pick-up.

This fall, all of our teen programs will be virtual. Unless it is specifically noted, all of our teen programs are open to middle school patrons. These include crafting, games, cooking, art classes, and more. The program calendar is the best place to find the most up-to-date information on all of our programs.

Book Clubs for Middle Schoolers

We have three book clubs for middle schoolers. All three clubs meet virtually once a month. Registration for the fall session (Oct-Dec 2020) is available through our program calendar. Sign-ups for the winter session (Jan-Mar 2021) will open in early December.

  • BookBuzz is our 6th grade book club. This group meets once a month on Mondays at 4:30pm.
  • BookLook is our 7th grade book club. This group meets once a month on Wednesdays at 6:30pm
  • BookIt is out 8th grade book club. This group meets once a month on Wednesdays at 6:30pm.

Please contact the teen librarian at lexteen@minlib.net if you have any questions about our book clubs for 6th-8th graders.
