How Can the Library Help You?

A lot is happening for teens in the Library this year. Get involved in some of our volunteer committees, join our Teen Advisory Group to help plan activities and even advise on decorations and purchases for the updated Teen Space. 


ASD Students are all members of the Anacortes Public Library! Be sure to stop by the Teen Section in the library to see all of the new books we get in on a regular basis.

Student ID Library Accounts for ASD Students

ASD Students are all members of the Anacortes Public Library
ASD ID Card with 0 crossed out on student number
Your student ID #/Card is your Library account. Scan your ID card to checkout books, or just use the number to checkout public library books. Login to apps like HOOPLA and Libby to checkout digital books with your 6 digit ID #, do not include the first 0. Your pin is set by default to the last four digits of your ID. It's that easy. 


High School Creative Writing

Wednesdays @ 2 - 3 pm

Share ideas and get feedback at this creative writing workshop. You bring the ideas, we'll provide the snacks.

9th - 12th grade only


Do you need volunteer hours? Are you good at cutting things out? Do you craft or have other special skills? Have you volunteered to make popcorn or other concession stand operations at events before? Do you just love setting up and taking down event/stage props? Our annual Genre celebration returns in 2024 with Adventure Day and we need volunteer before, after, and during the event. Let us know how you'd like to be involved in Adventure Day volunteer opportunities below.


Use all our library resources anywhere from home, using your student ID #. In addition to audiobooks and ebooks, you can also research a variety of topics for school and projects, take classes, and even watch plays, all from home, courtesy of the Anacortes Public Library. Explore these popular resources or check with your Teen Librarian anytime you visit. We can show you how to use resources, help you find books for assignments, and more.

Contact your Teen Librarian, Diana Farnsworth via email at dianaf@cityofanacortes.org or by visiting the library.

Points of View

Points of View Reference Center covers hundreds of topics, each with an overview (objective background/description), point (argument) and counterpoint (opposing argument).

Each topic features a Guide to Critical Analysis which helps the reader evaluate the controversy and enhances students’ ability to read critically, develop their own perspective on the issues, and write or debate an effective argument on the topic. Get Started With Points of View
