Your Libraries


Ashburn Library’s teen lounge was created with you in mind.  Located behind the DVDs, you can study or relax with your friends on our comfy chairs under color changing lights.  Ashburn Library provides teens with a variety of volunteer opportunities.  Work with children to improve reading skills in Reading Buddies, shelve books, or volunteer to help with other programs throughout the year.  You can even earn volunteer hours from home by writing reviews of your favorite books! 

At Cascades Library, enjoy large-screen Macs, gaming, comfy chairs and a space of your own.  Check out our manga and graphic novel collection.  Find your favorite authors and discover great new ones.  Looking for something fun to do on a Friday evening?  Our After Hours Teen Center offers gaming, special events, and a chance to socialize over pizza.  Yes, it’s all FREE!  Download a permission slip (required) here.  Open Fridays, 7–10 pm.

The Gum Spring Library Teen Center is a place designed by teens to be used exclusively by anyone 12-18 years old.  Custom built with the input of Loudoun County teens, the Center opened in February 2013 as a place for local youth to hang out, study, surf the web, play video games, socialize, and read books.  The Teen Center houses ten internet computer stations, two iMac computers, two Bamboo drawing tablets, free Wi-Fi, board games, an enclosed study room, and over 7,000 books, magazines, and graphics novels.  Our enclosed gaming center contains an HDTV, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and WiiU.  In addition to these, the Teen Center hosts a variety of programs ranging from DIY crafts and video game tournaments, to after-school mathematics help and monthly book and art clubs. 

Lovettsville Library welcomes you to come by to check out books, music, magazines, and more.  Stop by to talk with a librarian about how to download free books, music, and magazines or how to get homework help.  While you are here, take or leave a book in the teen book swap box, check out an iPad to use in the Library, stretch out in our seating area, or make use of the quiet study room.  Join the Lovettsville Library Teen Leadership Council meetings at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of each month during the school year.
