ACPL Teen Area


Hang out in the teen area, check out the manga selections, or use computers to play games (or, ahem, do homework). Our library staff host regular tween and teen programs as well as special events (like Sundae Wars and Library Lock-ins). If you want your voice to be heard, join the Teen Listening Council (TLC), and tell us what you want to see in your library.


Click here for our event schedule or call the library at 336.846.2041, option 3 to get the most updated information about tween events & programs at the library.

Programs & events for tweens include Maker Monday, Ashe County Drama Club, activity kits, and more. Visit Ashe County Public Library Online for our online events and activities.


Computers & Wifi

There are four desktop computers just for teens. Computers for children under the age of thirteen are available in the children's department. Note: Adults must keep child(ren) under the age of 12 in view when using the computer lab.

You can use your personal computers and devices to connect to the library's wifi network. This is a two-step process. First, connect to the Library Guest network. Then, open your browser (this may occur automatically) to view, read, and accept the Terms of Use policy. Once you have accepted the policy's terms, you will be redirected to the library website, at which point you should be fully connected to the wireless network.

Users can log on with their library card, StudentAccess number, or a guest pass.  If you have any questions, please visit the Information Desk.
