Ames Free Library

"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!

Come hang out with your Peeps this April! We’ll have a Peep Tasting where you get to try seven types of Peeps, guess the flavor of each, and rate them out of five. Leftover Peeps will be repurposed for some crafts as unique and exciting as the flavors we’ll test out. Is there a better way to ring in Spring than with some sugary, marshmallow-y chicks and bunnies?

Every TAB meeting is a chance to hang out, talk about how to make the Library (even more) awesome, and make something rad.

TAB sessions will take place inside Queset House in the First Floor Presentation Room.
