Welcome to HYPE - Detroit Public Library Teen Center

HYPE stands for Helping Young People Excel. It is the umbrella for teen-focused programs and services at Detroit Public Library. DPL recognizes that teens need their own space to learn, explore or simply hang out.

Our HYPE Center, located at the Main Library, combines digital technology with interaction, resulting in innovation and engagement that allows our teens to develop and become hyped for success.

Our vision for teen services is to provide an environment that inspires our teens to strive for and achieve their highest potential.  We promise that you will be motivated to excel!
