Hey there, my name is Elena and I’m here to invite you all to join a Teen Advisory Board for the Norristown Public Library.
A Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens aged 12-18 who work together with library staff to create, enhance, and improve upon Young Adult programs and activities. As a member of the board, you have the opportunity to display creativity, form leadership skills, and help serve your community. You also have the chance to put together programs that you have a personal interest in, such as chess or anime/manga club. In the past, our library’s TAB has put together a Bake Sale and raised enough money to buy a Wii U for our weekly Game Nights.
Some other ideas for things a TAB might decide to put together could be a Comic Convention, movie night, gaming tournament, writing club, or even an open mic night. It’s up to you to decide what types of programs are the best fit for you and your peers. I’m counting on you to bring your ideas to the table and put your heart into your programs!
If you’re interested, there are a couple ways you can let me know! You can leave a comment on this blog, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org , or call the circulation department at 610-278-5100 ext 0. I hope to hear from you, and see some new faces!
