Teen Advisory Board

What is a Teen Advisory Board (TAB)?

A TAB is a group of teens that meets with librarians monthly to discuss programs and materials for teens. Anyone ages 12-19 can join! The group can suggest books, movies, and magazines for the library to purchase, and help plan and develop new programs for the library. Teens can earn community service hours with participation in the meetings, and snacks are always served. This is your chance to develop leadership skills, get involved with library program planning, meet new people and have some fun.

The Teen Advisory Board is a chance for you to meet with us, tell us about programs you’d like to plan and hold at the library, let us know what the library can do to provide quality resources for both work and play. We hold regular meetings to discuss and plan programs geared toward teens. Any ideas you have can be discussed and we will do our best to implement these programs.

Please try to make each meeting – you will earn community service hours for attending. If you plan a program and help run it, you will also earn community service hours. Check the calendar to see when the next meeting will be and then register to let us know you’re coming!

If you have any questions, can’t make a meeting, or just have something to share, please get in touch with one (or both!) of us.
