TEENS!  Do you want to have more say in what we do at our library?  Now is your chance!



TAB’s give young people a VOICE in creating and sustaining programs for teens at the library.  TAB members can give input on YA collections, contribute to blogs, help lead/create programming, volunteer at events, organize community service projects, and influence how we serve teens!

BONUS: being involved with a Teen Advisory Board looks GREAT on college applications!
