The Teen Space located on the 2nd floor of the Menomonee Falls Public Library is specifically designed for use by patrons ages 13 to 18. Teen services staff monitor the area to provide assistance and to ensure appropriate access by this age group. The Teen Space is open during all regular hours.
All activities and programs in the Teen Space are designed solely for this age group; no other patrons or programs will be accommodated in this area.
Adults wishing to browse and checkout items displayed in the space are welcome to do so, but the space and equipment is reserved exclusively for teen use. Guardians and siblings are allowed in the teen space if accompanied by a teen or when browsing materials for a period of time not to exceed 20 minutes. Signs are posted to indicate the age group permitted in this specific area and to restrict other users from the area.
The Menomonee Falls Public Library is committed to providing an inviting and safe space for teens to engage in individual and group activities. We recognize that the social nature and unique characteristics of this age group require a separate space designed for their needs.
Patrons using the Teen Space must adhere to all other Library policies including the Code of Conduct.
