TAB Applications Now Available
Applications are being accepted for our Teen Advisory Board. 

TAB is a forum for teens in grades 7-12 to: 
  • have fun and meet other teens 
  • have a voice in planning library activities for teens
  • assist librarians with programs and events for children 
  • gain leadership skills and community service hours
TAB meets on the third Saturday of the month, September to May, 2:30-4:30 p.m. The group discusses and plans activities, volunteer opportunities, and thinks about ways the library can better serve teens in our community. TAB members earn community service hours for their time. 

For more information or to apply, visit tab.ippl.info.
