Services provided by the State Library of Pennsylvania grew to include electronic databases, digital collections, and a 24/7 live chat service. In 2013, all of these services were united under a single web portal and named POWER Library.

Reading Portals

Stuff for the Teen Age: For 80 years, New York Public Library staff shared the best titles for teens in an annual list called Books for the Teen Age. In 2009, Books for the Teen Age became Stuff for the Teen Age, a multimedia, multi-format, targeted, and teen-tested list of the best of the year in teen books, music, graphic novels, movies, games, and more.

In 2010, Stuff for the Teen Age became a blog. We post lists, recommendations, and variety of other topics related to teen books and media.

No Flying No Tights: Everything you need to know and more about comics, graphic novels, and manga.
Harper Teen: HarperTeen is the home of the most exciting teen publishing anywhere. HarperTeen books may pull back the curtain on the fabulous lives of the beautiful people, go beneath the humdrum veneer of the girl next door, or offer a glimpse into the days and nights of troubled teens.
