Know more about the library than your friends and see how much fun it can be to be appreciated for being YOU! Now virtually, Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is back as a monthly volunteer opportunity for students in grades 6th-12th, or teens age 12-18.

Do you want to be in charge for a change? Participate in Teens Advisory Group where you get to be the boss of all things teen by telling our Teen Librarian which books, games, programs, and services you want.
At each meeting, you can expect to hear an update from the Teen Librarian and have opportunities to share your opinion about stuff that teens care about through conversation, fun polls, or with emojis. You’ll also be given a secret password as proof of attendance. Use this to log your volunteer time and use it to claim TAG swag at the library (available during the week following the program).

TAG members follow four golden rules to participate: 1) Show your commitment by arriving on time 2) Make your mark by contributing to the conversation 3) Give each other respect by taking turns speaking 4) Follow through by answering three survey questions at the end of the program.

Virtual Volunteen Advisory Group is for high school students in district 428 and homeschooled teens that are between the ages of 14-18. It is on the first Wednesday of the month, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Virtual Middle School Teen Advisory Group is for middle school students in district 428 and homeschooled students who are between the ages of 12-14. It is on the third Wednesday of the month, from 4:00 PM – 5:00 p.m.
