Teens Believe in Self Care

February’s teen subscription packs focus on self-care because our Teen Advisory Group (TAG) members believe that taking time to celebrate YOU is especially important! Self-care promotes positive mental and physical health and can be incorporated into your daily routine in a variety of ways. Our TAG teens have come up with some self-care ideas that are low budget and easily accessible for any teen to achieve in their life. From DIY face masks to meditation to exercise…it’s time for you to take some much needed “ME TIME”!

February’s Teen Subscription pack is featuring the The Poet X by Elizebeth Acevedo on Hoopla!  You can download it as an ebook or eaudiobook!

Whether you read it and wanted to read other similar books, or you’re interested in self-care but would rather read a graphic novel, check out TAG’s read-alike book list for ideas. 

See something you want to read? Make a request for curbside pickup, or choose the eBook!
