"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 and talk about how to make the Library (even more) awesome.

In March, we'll be celebrating National Oreo Cookie Day with an Oreo Taste Test Challenge! See if you can identify unique, delectable flavors and prove your dedication to the cookie cause. Rank each variety from most to least tasty, and wash it all down with a glass of milk (or a dairy-free alternative).

Winter TAB sessions will take place inside Queset House in the First Floor Presentation Room. If the weather cooperates, the taste test will be staged out in the you may want to bundle up!
