The League of Teen Advisors

Make a difference at your library! Join our Teen Advisory Group. Your opinion matters - if you’d like to plan and assist with teen programs, then this is the group for you! Help shape services for teens at the library with this great volunteer opportunity.

From 3:00 – 4:00, we’ll discuss prize ideas for the teen summer reading program. Then we’ll break out the games! Use that grey matter to play video games or test your skills with our many board and card games! It’s a game day at the library, a chance for you to unwind and spend time with friends.

Feel free to email Young Adult Librarian Bonnie Svitavsky with questions about how the League of Teen Advisors can count towards school community service requirements.
