Hang Out, Mess Around, Geek Out

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.

Sorcery of Thorns, by Margaret Rogerson

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power. When the library’s most dangerous grimoire is released, Elisabeth’s intervention to save the surround town implicates her in the crime. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them. Does she have what it takes to save the building that she has loved since her infancy?
