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.

Ways you can volunteer virtually!
