Great Sites for Young Adults

  • Teen Reading:  -- run by the American Library Association's Young Adult Services Division. 
  • Internet Public Library Teen Division: -- a Virtual Library with sites compiled by librarians and graduate students in the School of Information and Library Studies at the University of Michigan.  There are librarians available by e-mail to answer questions that can't be ascertained using the myriad of reference sources in all different fields.  The teen division contains fun and useful sites on entertainment, careers, clubs and organizations to join, fashion, sports, term paper guides, and much, much more.
  • TeenHealthFX: -- is your online resource for any and all questions regarding your health, your relationships, your body and your sexuality. While this site is informative, it's not a substitute for talking to your doctor and your parents.
