The Teen Advisory Group–TAG–will continue to focus on giving teens a voice in how our library can meet their needs. Teens will advise the Teen Librarian on materials and programs, head up volunteer efforts at DeKalb Public Library, and network with other teens to keep our groups growing and going strong.

Read the book at home, watch the movie at the library! Join us as we trek through Middle Earth, travel through time, explore a candy factory, learn magic, swing through New York on a spider web, and so much more! Books are available the month prior to each event in the Teen Room.
