Teen Library Council

What is Teen Library Council?

The TLC is a group of teen volunteers who promote and create teen programming and services at the Library. Activities, under the guidance of the Teen Services Coordinator, include:

  • Advise, plan, and implement teen programs
  • Write articles or reviews for the teen webpage, social media accounts, and newsletter
  • Recommend books, movies, CDs, and magazines for the collection
  • Assist in creating an inviting teen space in the Library

The goal of TLC is to provide leadership and volunteer experience to positive, responsible, and energetic teens (ages 13 – 18). We wish to strengthen the Library’s ties to teens in the community by using their knowledge and creativity to create programs and further expand our collection.
