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.
  • Adults 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 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 five video game consoles available for teens to checkout.  A PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 Xbox One and  a Wii.  If you would like to use a game system, this is what you do:

  • Go to the circulation desk and checkout a game system with your library card.
  • You may checkout a game console for the entire day.
  • Bring one of your own games or grab a game from our collection and check it out.
  • Games can be rated for any age including M for Mature.
  • If others are waiting to use the monitor in the teen room there is a portable monitor for checkout available.
  • Please do not leave any library technology unattended.
  • Overdue gaming systems are $1.00 per hour.  The same goes for the portable monitor.

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