Teen Advisory Group (TAG)
Our Teen Advisory Group is a venue for teens in grades 9 through 12 to develop leadership skills, create library programs and influence our teen collection, while gaining community service hours! This is a great opportunity to:
- Suggest new teen programs
- Volunteer at programs such as travelogues, technology workshops, and other library
- Write book reviews for our review blog
- Create book or art displays and make recommendations to improve our teen spaces
Our community is remarkably well traveled and this program allows for the sharing of travel advice, stories and photographs. Contact Katherine Pillsworth for more information.
