Teen Advisory Board
What is TAB?
A Teen Advisory Board is a group of teens that are passionate about cultivating and improving library services for teens. TAB members meet on a regular basis to discuss ideas and plan events and programs centered around making WCPL a teen-friendly space in our community. TAB members attend and lead teen library programs, work as volunteers for special projects, and act as library ambassadors in their community by spreading the word about library programs and events in their schools, clubs and other social groups.
A TAB applicant must be between 13-18 years of age, be passionate about library services, and be able to commit to at least one hour long board meeting a month in addition to volunteering for special teen events and programs. Members must have a valid email address and be willing to communicate with the group via email.
TAB Meeting Information
The TAB board will meet on one Monday of every month from 4:00 – 5:00 PM at one of WCPL’s branch locations. Each TAB member is expected to attend this meeting, or notify the library staff in advance to let the group know they will not be there.
Benefits of Participating in TAB
If you are a TAB member, you will have a direct hand in influencing the type of programs and events the library provides for teens. You’ll get the opportunity to work closely with library staff to implement and run teen programs, and gain valuable volunteer and community experience you can list on a resume or college application.
