The Upton Town Library is committed to providing a wide range of services to library users of all ages. Service to young adults is of vital importance to us. The teenage years are a crucial time of transition as children grow into the full rights and responsibilities of adults. Upton Town Library helps to foster independence skills while still taking into consideration the different needs for patrons ages 12-18.

Young adult materials include fiction, graphic novels, and magazines. Currently, we offer a teen group program which meets weekly on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:30 for ages 10-16. Special and seasonal events are held throughout the year on a registration basis.

School outreach is a part of our services. Local schools are supported with school project materials, summer reading titles, as well as collaborative events with school librarians.


Our Creative Artistic Reading Team (or, C.A.R.T.) is an after-school group that meets weekly on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:30 in the Gathering Room. Students have the chance to make new friends, explore theme-based projects, and just have fun! Tweens and teens welcome this opportunity to develop independence skills and give input to our Young Adult collections and programming. Recommended for ages 10-16. 
No registration required.
