Teen Advisory Board
The Teen Advisory Board (T.A.B.) is a group of teens in grades 6-12 who meet once a month (September through June) to discuss teen issues, review books, plan teen events, volunteer at the library, and enjoy getting involved with other fun-loving teens. Membership is required, which you can do quickly online or by visiting us at the library. Your membership entitles you to member exclusive events at the library, which includes the lock-in and graduation party held annually, and activities such as acting in Teen Mysteries. The Friends of the Library even ensure we have food at every meeting. More information and online registration.
Explore the rewards of volunteerism by becoming a “Junior Friend” and helping with the summer reading programs for children, ‘tweens, and teens. Volunteering as a Junior Friend is both satisfying and also a great way to fulfill your school’s community service requirement or to begin building a resume for use in the future. Applications are available in May.
Teen Reading Programs
Summer Reading Program: This program is offered over the summer and focuses on a single theme that all ages can explore. Special book choices for teens will keep you intrigued, and you will enjoy the related discussion groups, gaming events, and themed events just for teens.
Winter Reading Program: Our winter reading program is the perfect choice for freezing, winter days when you just feel like hibernating. Snuggle up on the couch, read books from specific categories and/or play reading games. By finishing the program, you will win a prize and be eligible for a grand prize drawing.
