York County Libraries’ Teen Forum invites teens across the county to join the YCL Discord server!
While the library provides an in-person option for teens to hang out and socialize, the Teen Forum Discord is an online platform for teens to work together and connect digitally.
How will the Teen Forum use Discord?
The goal of the staff will be to create a safe space where teens can be themselves and to help them pursue new interests and hobbies. We will also be focusing on giving teens leadership opportunities and emphasize self-expression.
Through Discord, teens will be able to:
- Interact with each other
- Participate in library programs
- Host their own online events
- Find resources
- Build a community!
Current Discord Server Hours:
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM
- Wednesday: 2:00 PM- 6:00 PM
- Saturday: 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
What is Discord?
Discord is a digital platform for creating communities based on anything from video gaming to education to business administration. Organizations like YCL can establish their own “server,” and the server can be organized into different interest areas (called channels). Once a server is set up, users are added to the server via invitation.
How to Join the Teen Forum Discord
- Fill out the Teen Forum Discord Application below.
- A library card is needed to complete the form. If you forgot your card number, there is a section of the form designated for library card recovery.
- Teen Forum Staff will then email the Discord invitation or library card information to you.
- After receiving the invitation link, you can then join any “channels” of our Discord server that interest you.
- Channels help with organizing chat, voice, and video discussions based on topic, program, or interest area!
- We look forward to seeing the programs and events you join on our Discord!
