Meet other teens within Allegheny County on our Discord server and have a safe space to hang out. On our Discord server, we will have Homework Help, Book Clubs, and Game Nights led by our teen volunteers and Youth Services Specialist, Carrie Lowery. To get onto our Teen Discord server, all you need is a Discord username, library card, and to fill out our Google form in the button below. Once the form is submitted, Carrie, will send you an e-mail with more information and an invite to the server. 
Don’t miss out on the fun every Tuesday evening from 7-8 during our Teen Game Nights on Discord. These game nights involve multiple libraries throughout Allegheny County. Meet other teens with similar interests in a safe, online environment.
