Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

Are you a teen in grades 7-12? Do you love the library, and would you like to help keep it a great place for teens? Or do you look around and see some things you’d like to change, but you don’t really know who to talk to about your ideas? Perhaps you think our Teen collection needs some better books and more current CDs and DVDs. Maybe you think the town doesn’t have enough activities for kids your age, and you have ideas for some programs you think the library could offer that other kids your age would really enjoy. Maybe you just like the idea of being a community volunteer. If any of that sounds a bit like you, why not consider joining TAB, our Teen Advisory Board?

What does TAB do?

Teen ClusterTAB kids help the Teen Librarian select materials for the Teen Room. They help come up with ideas for programs. They assist the Children’s Librarians in the programs they do for younger kids. Here are some examples of some of the bigger projects the TAB has done over the years:

  • Designed the mural in the Teen Room
  • Gone to Barnes & Noble on shopping trips
  • Sponsored Teen Film Festivals
  • Sponsored Kids’ Morning Out programs so parents could go holiday shopping
  • Created Halloween programs for little ones
  • We are currently working on producing videos for the library
  • Lots of volunteering
  • Lots of CD and DVD selecting

When does TAB meet?

We meet once a month, unless a program requires an extra session. New members are always welcome. Before coming, please contact Miriam at the addresses below.

Bonus!

TAB participation can count towards volunteer hours for National Honor Society, confirmation and other programs which require them.
