About the Teen Department
The Augusta County Library offers an area just for teens. The Teen Zone in Fishersville features its own selection of books, books on CD, Playaways, magazines and internet computers. Relax in an oversized comfy chair and enjoy reading, collaborate with classmates on school assignments or participate in one of the teen programs available at the library. And don’t worry – if you can’t make it to Fishersville, our outlying locations have special collections put together for teens, too. Stop by and ask for more details.
