Whether you need a book for an assignment, a good read, or a place to hang out, The Teen Loft is for you. We strive to provide a respectful, safe and welcoming environment for all teens within the greater Riverhead Community. We have special programming and community service opportunities that are designed for youth entering grades 6 through 12.
The Riverhead Free Library offers a variety of volunteer programs for teens in grades 6-12 where they are able to earn community service hours. The teens will be given a certificate of completion at the end of each program which states the number of hours that were completed. Please view our newsletter and online calendar for additional community service opportunities.
