Services for 12+

Library services for young people 12 to 15

What does Inverclyde Libraries have for 12-15 year olds?

Lots of Books

All libraries have an excellent selection of books for all ages and stages.

We have Teen collections in all libraries with books aimed at young people aged 12-15 (although younger and older people often enjoy these books).

You can borrow 20 books at a time at no cost and we do not charge children and young people for overdue books if you keep them a little bit longer!

Digital services

Libraries have  free computers for young people to use, which makes the library a great place to do school or college work or simply access the Internet.

Study spaces & homework

All libraries have some space where young people can read, study or make. We hold a wide selection of non-fiction books to help you with homework, projects or revision and can provide access to PCs and printing. Useful websites to help you with homework can be found on the left hand side of this page.

Inverclyde Libraries Creative Writing Competition

Inverclyde Libraries annual creative writing competition is open to secondary school pupils and runs between September and November each year. Further details will be sent to all schools in June when they will also be available on our Upcoming Events page.


A summer drop-in session with creative writing and illustration prompts designed for young adults. Participants have the opportunity to develop a portfolio of creative writing and/or artwork during the summer holidays. Dates for this year will be posted on the Upcoming Events page.

Work with Secondary Schools

Inverclyde Libraries works in partnership with Secondary Schools across Inverclyde. For further information please visit our Secondary Schools at the Library page.


Inverclyde Libraries want to make our services as accessible as possible for everyone.
