Welcome to the Swampscott Public Library Teen Scene

Welcome to the Swampscott Public Library Teen Area, a haven for 7th through 12th graders. Come here to use the public computers, hang out with friends, look at magazines, and check out computer games and new music CDs. You can get assistance with your school projects or recommendations of new books to read. We also have a graphic novel collection, including manga.

Summer Reading & Crafts

Join us on Thursday, June 7th at 6:30 pm for crafty fun with books. Bookmarks made out of spine labels, a flower pot decorated with book pages – the possibilities are endless! Come and see what we’ll create! Supplies will be provided!

Get Ready for Summer Reading!

Libraries Rock!


Here’s how it works:

For every book you read, take either a selfie with the book, or take a picture of the book itself and make it all snazzy.

Kinda like this:


You and the book, or just the book, is going to end up on 

Additionally, for every one book you read, you get one raffle ticket you can put towards a gift certificate to the Liberty Tree Mall, or to the AMC movie theater (also at the Liberty Tree Mall), or to Popo’s. 

For every three books read, you get two raffle tickets—one for the above prizes and one I will put towards the big prize: a Kindle Fire.
