Being a teen isn't always easy. There are so many changes in your life, so many things you need to learn. Just surviving can feel like a challenge. However, there are also a ton of opportunities to grow, and fun roads to explore while finding out who you want to be. Sno-Isle Libraries staff are there for you. We understand that sometimes you don't feel comfortable asking a librarian about sensitive issues. Likewise, results from a web search doesn't always give you the best information. That's why we put together these list of good online resources and booklists for you.
Sno-Isle Libraries' Issues That Matter programs are meant to encourage community conversations on high-profile topics. Previous topics have included Teen Suicide, Trafficking, Bullying, and Gun Violence. For the full list of topics, plus recaps, videos, and online resources, check out Issues That Matter.
