Teen Book Club (Farmville library)
Teens (ages 13 – 18) years old can sign up for our monthly book club! Each month we will discuss the book, have a snack, and socialize. Thanks to support from the Friends of the Barbara Rose Johns Farmville-Prince Edward Community Library, teens will receive a brand new copy of the book club title that they get to keep.

Teen Volunteer Program
If you’re between the ages of 15-18 and want to add experience to your resume, become a library volunteer at either of our branches!

  • BrainFuse is a new online resource made available to the public by the Library of Virginia. You can use BrainFuse for homework help! You will be connected to an expert through live chat to help you find the answers you need.
  • iCivics was founded by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor to promote civics education for future generations. This site includes lesson plans for teachers or home school educators, plus games and learning modules for children in 3rd – 12th grade. The site can be used without an account, but creating a free account will allow your child to vote for “impact projects” proposed by other kids looking to make a social change. The projects, like providing books to students in high poverty areas, or researching alternative energy, get funding from iCivics if they gain the most votes! 
  • Typing Club is a FREE site with engaging lessons and games to help anyone learn touch typing – meaning typing on a keyboard without looking at the keys. To save progress through the lessons, a free account must be created.
