Oakland Public Libraries Teen Section

Oakland Public Libraries. (n.d.). Welcome to the teen zone. Retrieved from https://oaklandlibrary.org/teens

Ages: 12+

Summary: This is the teen section of the Oakland Public Libraries website. The home page has calendar of upcoming events and links to events & programs; read, write, & listen (choose between staff picks or teen picks); get involved (includes volunteer opportunities and teen advisory boards); your life (includes school and mind & body); and your library.

Appeal: This teen section of the library has lots of useful links for teens. It includes links to social media accounts, and the event calendar is very useful. The purple color used throughout the teen section is different than the regular blue used for the rest of the library website. However, there is not a lot that makes the website stand out.

One huge bonus is that the website has an entire page dedicated for teachers in the area. It includes information about bringing public librarians into the classroom and having class visits to the library.
