Teen Room Guidelines and Features

Welcome to the Teen Room!

Teen Room

Welcome to the Teen Room at the Orion Township Public Library!  There are a few guidelines we ask patrons to follow along with some really neat features you can read about below.

Teen Room Guidelines

  • Patrons between 6th and 12th grade welcome!
  • Children under 6th grade are welcome to come in and get a book but should reserve computer use and study space for teens.
  • Adult are also welcome to come in and get material but space and computers are reserved for teens.
  • No adult tutoring permitted, but teen peer-to-peer tutoring is encouraged.
  • The door to the teen room may be closed but please keep the lights on.

Teen Room Features

Teen Computers

  • Five computers for teens to use at their leisure.
  • A computer monitor for teens to check out game systems (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii) and play on.
  • A comfortable sitting area and table.
  • All of the Lake Orion High School textbooks for students to use and study from (just outside of the teen room).
  • Popular fiction books and audiobooks.
  • New teen books and audiobooks (located just outside of the teen room).
  • A growing manga and comic book collection.

Video Game Consoles

The library has three video game consoles available for teens to checkout.  A Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.  If you would like to use a game system, this is what you do:

  • Ask at the reference desk for the console you would like.
  • Leave a student ID, driver’s license or some other form of collateral.
  • Get a game from our collection or bring your own!
  • The games should be rated T (Teen) or younger.
  • Please, no M (Mature) or A (Adult) rated games!
  • If others are waiting to play, teens can keep a game system for up to 2 hours. 
  • If you have to leave and someone else is playing, they must leave their ID so you can get yours back, or you will have to return the console.

If you have any questions about any of the teen room guidelines, features or game systems, please ask someone at the adult reference desk!
