As you may know, PVLD will begin construction on a Teen Annex soon! This important project, to be located at the main library, furthers our commitment to have a library as a community gathering place. Thanks to the many generous citizens in our community, we have raised almost enough money to make this dream come true. But we still need some help. Please consider donating to the Annex to put us over the top and become a member of the Peninsula Friends of the Library!

The Teen Annex will be located in the present upper parking lot (up on the roof) at the Peninsula Center library, and will serve as a welcoming and supervised intimate space for teens to study, converse, enhance computer skills, craft projects, or just “hang out.” During school hours the space will be available for small community group meetings. However, the Annex will focus on the wants and needs of our teens and will incorporate computers, gaming stations, comfortable chairs and quite and study areas.

This is the only facility dedicated to teens on the Hill. It doubles our present off site area and promises to be “the place” for middle and high school students, grades 6-12. We currently have two dedicated on-site supervisors during the teen hours Monday – Friday from 3-7 pm, and this will continue in the new Annex. To learn more, check out our video!

The primary funding for this Annex is provided by the Peninsula Friends of the Library and we welcome your support. To make a donation please click here. To learn more about this important community project please call Colleen Cotter at 310 921-7505 or email to
