The teen advisory board is a chance for teens to have a say in all things teen at the library.  Share program ideas, create book displays, decorate the teen area and more.

At the this, the first meeting, we will also work on scheduling a time that works best for everyone. 

The TAB meets once each month, September thru June, for about one hour.  This time does count toward NHS and other community service requirements.  Additional hours can be accumulated by helping with teen events throughout the month.  We do ask that you commit to a full school year, but understand that sometimes you just can't make it.
