Upcoming Events At This Venue

July 2, 2020

Join the library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB)! What exactly is the Teen Advisory Board, you ask? A chance to connect and a chance to influence decision-making in the library!

TAB members will lead a redesign of the teen space in the library (in the not-too-distant future), plan and help run programming for teens (like trivia and game nights), and advise library staff on decisions that impact teens in the library and the community. TAB is a good way to accumulate volunteer hours, beef up your resume, and meet other bookish teens. Attendance at all meetings is not mandatory – come to as many as you can.

If you’re interested, email Teen Services Librarian Amy D. at adickinson@montroselibrary.org. We hope to see you soon!
