TAB: Teen Advisory Board
TAB is a group of tweens and teens that meets once a month. TAB collaborates with the Teen Services Library Assistant to help improve teen programs and the teen space, suggests materials such as books and games, and creates ideas to help connect the Library with the community. Join today! For grades 5-12.
Members of the Teen Advisory Board volunteered at the button making and bookmark coloring station on the Library lawn during the Pumpkin Regatta weekend. Part of TAB's mission is to help the Library connect with the community. Thank you, TAB group, for giving your time and talents in meeting that mission! TAB will be volunteering next at the Once Upon a Pie Competition and Auction. Stop by and say hello!
