Want to be a leader and influence your community library?
Do you feel passionate about making our community a better place?

TAG runs from September to the end of May. Alongside giving feedback on teen library programs, TAG will:
- Identify a community need/issue
- Research that issue (for example, interviewing friends, family, or neighbors)
- Develop a way that the library can address that need/issue (for example, buying more books, bringing in a guest artist or teacher, etc)
- Create a public awareness campaign
TAG meets in the evening on the first and third Tuesday of the month at the Main Library (some meetings will be virtual); we ask that TAG members commit to the whole year*. Receive volunteer credit for meetings and for work done outside the meetings.
