If the answer is YES and you’re between 7th and 12th grade, the Teen Advisory Board (TAB) might just be for you!

Find out more about the perks of joining TAB at the first meeting of the school year this month. Each SCPL library has their own separate board that meets once a month. Here are the times for the first meetings at each branch:

  • Valencia: Tuesday, September 5th, 5 – 6 p.m.
  • Canyon Country: Friday, September 9th, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
  • Old Town Newhall: Thursday, September 15th, 5 – 6 p.m.

We’ll fill you in on why we’re looking for teens like you and what you can expect out of your time with TAB.

Just for starters, TAB is where you can:

  • Help shape teen services – plan programs that matter to you!
  • Gain leadership skills – great for future jobs and college apps!
  • Get your voice heard – tell us what books + movies you want to see!
  • Make new friends and preview teen activities!

Intrigued? Know someone else who might be a good fit? Spread the word and come learn more with other teens at the first meeting!
