Hello, teens!









Welcome to your library, where you can find good books, get help with homework, attend programs designed for you, or study with your friends in our Teen Zone.

If you’re looking for something great to read, we’ve got it. If you need some recommendations, we’ve got you covered. Don’t forget digital books and magazines for your mobile device, we’ve got those too!

Whatever you’re looking for, Cook Library has it for you 24/7. Cuz even when the library is closed, our website is open for business.
