"Where the Community Connects"

AFL Teen Advisory Board

Teens - do you want to have a say in what happens at YOUR library? The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) meetings are back in-person! We’re seeking members between the ages of 12 and 18. Everyone’s welcome to join!

Every TAB meeting is a chance to hang out, talk about how to make the Library (even more) awesome, and make something rad. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet Alyisha, the new Young Adult Coordinator! Alyisha likes to read, bike, tap dance, eat cookies, and dream about the ocean. She has a pet house rabbit named Moxie Crimefighter. Alyisha (not Moxie) can’t wait to meet you (Moxie is an adorable yet reclusive grump).

Winter TAB sessions will take place inside Queset House in the First Floor Presentation Room. Masks are required.
