DELPHOS — It’s true, the Delphos Library definitely has a teen room and an Xbox. But that’s just the beginning. The teen room has been a work-in-progress since the beginning of 2014, thanks to some awesome donations. Over the summer you may have missed the henna tattoo artist, DIY bouncy balls, a bunch of candy and other cool stuff.

To visit the teen room, simply go downstairs during events and open hours, usually posted online and at the library.
