Young Adult Space

About Us

Hampton Library recognizes that young adults need and deserve services tailored to address their unique educational, informational, cultural, and leisure time needs. Our Young Adult Space provides a safe and welcoming environment for all teens within the greater Bridgehampton - Sagaponak Community, with special programming that is designed for youth entering grades 6 through 12.   Here young adults can grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially in a caring, nurturing and respectful environment; where they can develop new literacies for learning and expression; where they can use the library’s research resources to study, read, write, discuss books, socialize, participate in programming, or simply “hang out,” as well as gain workplace preparedness through engagement in various community service projects.

Autumn in the YA Space

Anime/Manga Club

Fall is here which is our favorite time of year! Congratulations to all of those who participated in the YA Summer Reading Club and to those who won their raffle prize basket: you helped us break our previous reading record! We have some fun programming this season to keep you relaxed while we turn up the fun. Keep your eyes out for some returning favorites: Anime/Manga Club, Halloween Escape Room and After Hours Movie Night.

Dungeons and Dragons

Local teen Liam will be leading us as Dungeon Master in Dungeons and Dragons, a new program for the Young Adult room. We are also introducing a new group to the library, CYA: Council of Young Adults. This group is to be made of teenagers who attend library programming and would like a say in Young Adult programming and books. Community service hours are granted based on teen participation. Speak with our YA Librarian for more information.

When the Sky Fell on Splendor, by Emily Henry

For those fans of Stranger Things and The Serpent King. Meet a group of friends in a small town who find themselves with unexpected powers after a truly cosmic event. When the steel mill exploded in Splendor, Ohio, just about everyone was affect by it—through your own casualty or that of a family member. Five years after the explosion, Franny still sits by her brother Arthur’s bedside as he lies in a coma. Franny finds solace in a group of friends who have experienced similar trauma, and call themselves The Ordinary, spending their free time uploading videos to YouTube on ghost stories and legends from Splendor. One night as the Ordinary is exploiting their town’s spooky lore, they encounter something that they can’t just make up—a bright light hurtling toward them from the sky and crashes to the ground... suddenly, everything changes. After the crash, the Ordinary find themselves with scars, markings, powers and new abilities. What could go wrong? This fast-paced sci-fi novel touches on how important friendship is when all you know is loss, grief and the supernatural.

Science Fiction

skyward

Skyward, by Brandon Sanderson

“We must not cower in the dark because we’re afraid of the spark within us.”
Once defeated, crushed and driven almost to extinction from decades of war, Spensa’s world continues to be under alien attack from the Krell. Pilots are the heroes of what’s left of humanity, but her father’s legacy stands in the way of her only dream—he was a pilot who was killed for desertion years ago, branding Spensa as the daughter of a coward. With all this, Spensa is still determined to fly, even if it means overcoming her own pride and fears to become what she has always longed to be: a pilot. With a sudden discovery of an ancient ship in an abandoned cavern, her dreams just might come to light as she attempts to claim the stars.
