For our high school and college students, we have the Young Adult niche. Here you can check out fiction, graphic novels, audiobooks, non-fiction, and video games perfect for 14 and over. We also have great seating and atmosphere for your next study group.


Programming just for the youth 

Youth Night: The last Tuesday of January, March, May, July, September, and November from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. we will host an activity great for those 12 and older.

Ice cream stands and pools around Hampshire County are now open! But maybe they don’t have your favorite flavor. Why not try to make your own ice cream? We’ll be whipping up our own special flavors at HCPL in May.





Don’t let the summer heat get you down. Come out to HCPL and cool down. July’s youth night will be an epic water balloon battle. We’ll provide the water balloons, but make sure to bring your own towels. And maybe some super soakers if you have them!





As the weather starts to cool off in September, come inside HCPL to snuggle up with a good movie. Just make sure to bring your own comfy seating to build a pillow fort, or blankets to stretch out on the balcony, if you don’t want to use our provided seating. Also, feel free to bring your favorite movie munchies (to share or to hoard, your choice!)
