Teen Advisory Board Meeting!
Wednesday, September 18th
From 6:00-7:30 p.m.
This is our monthly TAB meeting. Everyone in grades 6-12 who has an interest in teen materials collection, programs, and activities offered for teens and "tweens" should consider being part of the Teen Advisory Board of the Danville Public Library. All of our meetings are open to everyone in grades 6-12. We do fun activities at most meetings, plan future programs and activities, develop a volunteer program, and participate in community service activities in addition to helping with other programs offered at the Danville Public Library. Members are not expected to attend every meeting or every event. Once on the board, you will receive monthly information from our meetings even if you are not able to attend. It is my hope that we would develop a large enough group to have at least 8-10 members at each meeting and 20 (hopefully more) members on the board. Serving on this board looks great on college applications and job applications. Those who participate regularly in TAB, for 6 months or more, can request personal letters of recommendation from Kris. Please feel free to bring friends with you to meetings. For more information, call or email
