What are TAB Subcommittees?
TAB Subcommittees meet during TAB meetings to work on special events and projects. Not every committee meets year round, so it is possible to participate on more than one. Subcommittees for the 2015-2016 are:
- Teen Programs - planning and promoting programs for teens
- Gaming - planning and staffing gaming tournaments and other related events
- The Sound - planning and promoting our 4th annual teen music competition in June
TAB meets September - May on the 3rd Saturday from 2:30-4:30 pm. We discuss and plan upcoming activities, volunteer opportunities, and consider ways the library can better serve teens in our community. You will earn community services hours for the time your spend at TAB meetings and the time you spend assisting with programs or services at the library.
