Teen Advisory Board
The FPL Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a committee made up of five (5) teens who want to have an active say in library services, materials, and programs specifically suited for young adults. TAB members will be selected by designated library staff based on application submissions. Upon acceptance, TAB members will assist in the recommendation and purchase of items for the teen area, and they will also help brainstorm ideas for programs and events that will engage and entertain the local teen community, such as movie nights, pizza parties, “fandom” nights, and more.
