Teen Outreach

Fairfax County Public Library provides youth outreach services outside the walls of our library branches! FCPL's School-Age and Teen Services Outreach team specializes in delivering library services directly to teens throughout Fairfax County. We offer a variety of dynamic and interesting programs for children ages 12-18 that we can bring directly to your site (interested in opportunities for youth ages 5-12? Visit our School-Age Youth Outreach page). For every program, FCPL provides the staff and supplies at no cost to you. 

We are working to expand our partnerships with community organizations that share our goal of supporting, engaging and empowering teens. We seek to promote literacy, encourage curiosity and foster a love of lifelong learning by offering the following programs and services:

  • Pop-Up Libraries: We bring a mini library directly to you! We'll curate a collection of books for your participants to check out and return to us at our next visit. While participants are taking turns browsing our book selections, we offer an engaging craft or STEM activity.

  • Portable Programs: We bring a wide range of educational and engaging programs to your site, including crafts and STEM activities. Additionally, we can provide information about library services and events (including our summer and winter reading challenges), reading lists and other library resources at our visits.

  • Book Bundles: We deliver a bundle of 20-30 books for our partners to keep on site until they are ready to be checked back in. These bundles can be tailored around a specific theme or topic. We can also offer information about library services, resources and events at these visits.

  • Presentations and Workshops:  Did you know that the library provides resources such as homework help, free tutoring, language learning and more? We provide presentations and skill-building workshops for youth, parents and educators.

  • Informational Tables: We can set up an informational table at your event. We will provide information about library services and resources, library card registration and more. Additionally, we can distribute crafts-to-go kits for youth.

We serve:  

  • Community organizations
  • Community events
  • Parent groups
  • Schools
  • Scout groups
  • Religious organizations
  • After-school programs
  • Homeschoolers and homeschooling groups
