Area teens are invited to participate in an award-winning, nontraditional book club for teens ages 12-18.  Teen Reading Lounge (TRL) is an interactive group designed for teens, with teens driving the book selections, discussions, and projects.  BAPL is proud to offer two clubs for teens under the TRL umbrella:  Teen Book Club and the Middle Ground Book Club.  This arrangement fosters age-appropriate books and discussions.  For further information, contact BAPL’s Youth Librarian, Debbie Deane at

TRL Kick-Off Parties are:

Monday, January 24 at 5 PM (high school students) and Thursday, February 3 at 5 PM (middle school students).

Brand new attendees will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card.  Current members bringing a new person will also be entered into the drawing!  Attend alone or with a friend! 

Come for the free books, pizza, games, and prizes, but especially for the welcoming community of our teen members!
Teen Reading Lounge is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, the Federal-State Partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, developed in part by federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds administered by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
