What Will Teens Do On T.A.B?
You’ll get to boss Kim, the teen coordinator around!  You’ll get to help the library plan programs, select movies, books, CDs, video games for our collection.  You will be able to suggest, plan and execute, attend, publicize and promote programs.  Plus help develop some policies and procedures.  

Responsibilities of a T.A.B. Member
Attend all meetings and programs, (calling at least 3 hours in advance in you are unable to make it.)  Promote the library and our amazing services and programs to your school and the community.  Plan teen programs, brain storm, marketing and publicity.  Set up and take down of events and programs, suggest teen programs, books, DVD, CDs and video games.  Help with the upkeep and decoration of the teen space and commit to 3 to 5 hours a month.
