Find out what the library offers teens!
We have fun events, as well as, helpful and entertaining books and media that are designed for teens. Check out our Teen Zone, a corner of the library that’s set aside for this age group.
TEEN ZONE TOUR
Take a virtual trip through our Teen Zone by clicking here: https://tinyurl.com/cdateenzonetour! On the tour, you’ll find photos of the prize book shelf and the current Teen Zone Take-Out craft offerings. There are links to our catalog, as well. Not to mention the current Teen event schedule. Browse the Teen Zone from home or from curbside (with a mobile device). There’s lots of hidden easter eggs through the tour. See if you can find them all!
INSIDE THE TEEN ZONE
Are you the visual type? If so, this area is for you. In this area, you’ll find our GN (graphic novel and manga) collection, as well as our magazine subscriptions. There’s also a teen event schedule that’s posted every month in this section.
Search here for your favorite YA (Young Adult, aka Teen) fiction books. There are a variety of choices, ranging from classics to fresh-off-the-press reads. New books are continually being added, so be sure to check back regularly.
For YA Non-fiction, Biographies, and teen-only computers, stop by the 4Teens Room. If homework is overwhelming, feel free to use the library’s video game equipment to blow off some steam.
Don’t see what you need? Feel free to request that we purchase a missing title or format through our Purchase Suggestion Form. If you have a program suggestion, send a message to the Young Adult Coordinator.

And Last But Not Least
Are you an artist of the spoken word? This is your time to shine.
Here’s all the information you’ll need to submit your video to the Poetry Out Loud: Virtual Recitation Contest at Coeur d’Alene Public Library.
How it works
- You must be in 9th to 12th grade to participate.
- Choose a poem from poetryoutloud.org
- Practice it. Memorize it. Understand it.
- Record yourself reciting it from memory. (No props or costumes are allowed.)
- Submit your video, using the form below, by January 31st.
- Three judges will review your video, based on the Judge’s Guide.
- Receive your results by February 5th.
The winner of the competition will go on to the State Finals (and will get a prize pack from us at the library). The winner’s entry video may also be shared online through the library’s Facebook page (with your guardian’s permission, of course).
