What’s this page all about?
It’s simple. We’re here to help you connect with books,
activities, interesting sites we’ve found on the Internet and, of
course, other teens who also enjoy the library. Maybe, along the way,
you’ll discover other connections: to memorable characters in books, to
fantastic universes you’ve never before imagined, and to a wider, more
complex world. Welcome to TeenConnect!
How do I get a library card?
Teens 14 and up can get cards without the help of a
parent. You need to bring something to the library that proves you
either live in Saco, or if you don’t, that you attend school here. Some
things you could use: the envelope from mail you received at your Saco
home address, your driver’s license or learner’s permit, your school ID
card or your official school schedule.
What if I’m not 14 yet?
You will need to have your parent or guardian fill out
and sign the application card.
