The 210teenlibrary Discord Server ("this server") is a virtual library space for teens (ages 13 to 18). This server is a safe space for all teens, and as such, we support and respect diverse identities, perspectives, beliefs, and points of view. Just like in-person teen spaces at San Antonio Public Library (“SAPL”) locations, this server is a place where teens get to decide what happens - including activities, events, conversations, and more.
SAPL Staff are here to make sure the server is operating correctly, help facilitate clubs, answer questions, and assist with anything else that might arise. SAPL Staff are not necessarily here to jump into conversations on the server – while we are always happy to chat with you, this is YOUR space and we respect it and fully support it as a “teens only” and teen-led space.
We don't want to limit how you and other teens interact on this server, but we want to make sure that this server is a welcoming, inclusive, and safe library space for all teens. Here are this server’s guidelines:
This server also abides by the following guiding documents:
Comments posted by teens on this server do not necessarily reflect the views or position of the San Antonio Public Library.
By joining, using, participating, and remaining on this server, you grant the San Antonio Public Library permission to share and reproduce any content you post on this server for informational, educational, and promotional purposes. We will remove your username on anything we share/reproduce, unless we’ve asked for and receive your consent to share/reproduce your content with your username or name.
SAPL Staff and/or Teen Mods may contact you if something you post is not in the spirit of these guidelines. We'll let you know what’s going on and have an open, honest conversation with you about the situation; our hope is to clear up any misunderstandings so everyone can get back to enjoying the server.

Did you know that you can potentially earn volunteer hours on the 210teenlibrary Discord server as a Teen Mod or a Club Assistant?
Teen Mods moderate the server; answer questions; host virtual clubs and other activities; recommend and add new server features; troubleshoot issues on the server; and more!
Club Assistants host specific clubs and answer questions about those clubs. They can also help with general questions about the server!
SAPL Staff may also post information about "open calls" for new Teen Mods and Club Assistants. During those times, teens can indicate their interest in becoming a Teen Mod / Club Assistant and may be contacted by SAPL Staff to chat about this opportunity.
Both Teen Mods and Club Assistants are official teen volunteer positions at the San Antonio Public Library; please note that SAPL teen volunteers must be between the ages of 14 to 18. More info about teen volunteers is available at guides.mysapl.org/teenvolunteers.
