Join the Teen Advisory Board! (registration is required)
Are you 12-16 and like spending time in the library? If your answer is yes, then the Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is for you! We are looking for teens to assist us with the summer reading program and other activities that we do throughout the year. You will assist with collection development, programming for all ages, set up book displays, and assist with time keeping for the summer reading program. We meet throughout the year, usually every 3 weeks, on Wednesdays, at 4:00pm.
June 6th and 27th, July 18th, August 8th and 29th. Of course we have snacks!!
Why have a TAB?
- TABs give young people a voice in creating and sustaining services for them and provide a safe environment without the pressures from school, home, and community (King, 2005)
- Teens will feel more connected to the library and become more involved lifelong library users
- TAB members promote library services to other teens (Honnold, 2008)
- TABs give teens more focused opportunities for volunteering, with concrete results from their work (Kendrick-Samuel, 2012)
