The Teen Advisory Board meets once a month September through May, making it a great opportunity for teens in grades 6-12 to meet new people and get involved. TAB members help plan and participate in the teen events, give input about items that may be added to the library collection, and earn community service hours. And of course, there is always free food and fun activities!
