Every 1st and 3rd Thursday come to the Teen Space at Defiance Public Library and watch anime. The club is open to those in grades 6-12.

The club is led by one of our Teen Advisory Board members.

Preparing for college is a daunting task for parents & students alike.  We hope the list of websites compiled here for you will help relieve some of the stress & anxiety associated with trying to plan for the future.  You will find sites here to help in searching for the right college, as well as guiding your funding & scholarship searches.  We wish you & your child the best & good luck in your search.

Knowing how to connect with your teen is not something you automatically know how to do the moment you become a parent.  Below you will find some sites with information about how crucial the bond between a parent & teen is to their development, as well as tips on building a strong parent-child relationship.  You will also find information about the strong positive impact reading can have on your child’s development.

Want the latest and greatest info on the entertainment track?  Have a question about your health?  Maybe you just want to find a good book to read.  Or, maybe you are the curious type that likes to know how things work.  You can find all this & more on the websites we’ve provided for you, so have fun exploring!

Education is a key component to our mission.  Therefore, supporting other organizations dedicated to education is very important to us.  We hold educators in the highest regard & hope you will find some of the sites & services useful in your instruction of Middle, Jr. & High school students.
