    A special feature we currently have in the Teen Area is our Community Coloring Page!

    Feel free to stop in and contribute a bit of your creativity to this page, and let’s see the Coventry community work together to create a fun display of color!


    Speaking of creations… we want to display your artwork!

    If you’re a teen in grades 6-12, you can leave a piece of artwork (preferably on paper, as opposed to canvas/other materials, and no bigger than 12” x 12”) in the bin featured near this display, and we will post it on our bulletin board in the Teen Area to showcase your artwork to the community!


    Please note—we ask that you not include any personal or revealing information on your artwork, for safety + privacy reasons. At most, your first name and age are acceptable; otherwise we will not be able to publicly share your work. If you would like to share your artwork, but want to leave contact information with a librarian in the event that you would like your artwork returned to you after it has been displayed—please speak with a librarian in-person in the Youth Services Department.


    Artwork will be shared at the discretion of the Teen Librarian—as long as your artwork isn’t inappropriate, hurtful to others, or otherwise unsuitable to be displayed in a public environment where people of all ages can see it—we’ll be happy to share your creations!
