Teen Advisory Board (TAB):
Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group that meets every other month to plan teen programs and suggest books and other materials for the library. All of this is done in a laid-back atmosphere where chocolate and other sugary snacks serve as inspiration for the group. If you’re interested in joining or just want to sit in on a meeting, feel free to show up at the next scheduled one. Watch for announcement of next scheduled meeting date.

Volunteer Service:
Do you need to volunteer for community service for school or church? You can earn that time by volunteering as a Book Buddy and/or Program Assistant in the Teen Summer Reading program.
Book Buddies read to children from the Head Start Program. Program Assistants help the Children’s Librarians with programs for younger children.
