The Cerritos Library includes an area that is dedicated to its Young Adult visitors.   This room is home to an extensive collection of fiction books and periodicals and is located on the far end of the first floor across from the Craftsman area. This special area for teens features Art Deco design and the portal was inspired by the iconic Pan Pacific Auditorium located in Los Angeles.

The Young Adult room provides a comfortable space for teenagers to read, study, and work in small groups. Study tables include data ports and power so teens can plug in and connect their laptop computers to the Internet. An Info Station service point provides assistance.  A variety of booklists to satisfy young adult readers' interests are offered.  Teens can also access the electronic catalog here.

The room features displays of items of interest to young adults, such as the winning entries for the Library's teen art, photography, poetry and short story contests.  Exhibits are regularly changed throughout the year.

A beautifully illuminated etched glass wall divides the Young Adult area from the multimedia collection which features DVD’s, audiobooks and CDs.

The Library plans special programs for teens, such as plays and concerts, author visits, video game tournaments and the ever popular Summer Reading Program. In addition, middle school and high school teachers are invited to bring their classes to the Library for tours and instruction on library research.

Area teens are encouraged to become involved with the Library through the Volunteen program. Volunteens shelve books, help children access information on computers and assist librarians with other tasks.
