Know a Teen Who Has Questions? We've Got Answers!

Teens have a lot of questions they want answered, either for school or on their own. Sometimes those topics can get uncomfortable, and they don't know where to turn for reliable information. The Pottsville Library Reference Department has some trusted online resources that might be able to help!

There are a growing number of online books available to our library patrons with their library cards. To read these books, just go to our homepage at We added a whole series to our Infobase Ebooks collection, available to you from any computer. If students are worried others might see what they are reading, this is a great way for them to get this important information in private.

Some of the new teen titles include:

The Truth About Eating Disorders

The Truth About Smoking

The Truth About Alcohol

The Truth About Rape

The Truth About Sexual Behavior and Unplanned Pregnancy

The Truth About Anxiety and Depression

The Truth About Stress Management

The Truth About the Internet and Online Predators

All of the Infobase titles are also available in print format in the Reference Collection, if you prefer to read the old fashioned way.
