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.

Where to find the 1619 Project

“The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”

-Hannah-Jones, N., In Elliott, M., Hughes, J., Silverstein, J., New York Times Company., & Smithsonian Institution. (2019). The 1619 project: New York Times magazine, August 18, 2019.
