Giph from Rick & Morty. Blonde woman says, "Everything's new." while pressing her fingers together in front of her.
We have ordered a whole bunch of new manga and graphic novels! Stay up to date on all new titles that will be added in January and February. Place items on hold or stop in and browse the new shelf in the YA Area.
Surrounded by 10 book cover images, text reads "New in 2023." Book covers are YA titles and range from fiction to nonfiction to manga to graphic novels.
Teen Makerspace

Did you know our Teen Makerspace has board games, coloring crafts, and more for you to use while you're in the library? Visit the circular shelving in the back corner to see the rotating options. 
A wreath with flowers, branches, and pinecones in blues, silvers, and reds encircles the text, "Teen Makerspace. Create a winter wreath."
The Teen Makerspace's wreath making project is winding downVisit the YA Area and craft your own with mini wreathes with ribbon, pinecones, and more. These super cute mini-wreathes would make excellent winter decorations for yourself or as a gift for a friend.

If you do not have time to make a wreath in the library please ask a librarian for a teen Take & Make bag, while supplies last. We are running very low! Stop in soon.

Coming soon... decorate your own canvas bag! Stay tuned for details.
2022 YA Collection 
Seeing ourselves, our neighbors, and the global community in the media we consume leads to many positive outcomes. Diversity in literature broadens horizons, pushes back bias and prejudice, builds community, and increases our self-awareness and acceptance.

CFPL is proud of the diverse and varied collection of YA materials that we purchase for you and the community. Continue reading more about what was purchased in 2022 in the below infographic.
