Surprise! We unexpectedly received a small shipment of solar eclipse glasses. Stop by the Farmington Branch Library (23500 Liberty Street) to pick up a pair while supplies last. You must be a FCL cardholder and there is a limit of one per household.

Teen Advisory Board

TAB 2015-0114

TAB Jan. 14, 2015 – Representatives from the Farmington Hills fire and police departments visited to say thank you for Operation Goody Bag – a program teen volunteers organized to show appreciation for the hard work of area public safety officers over the holidays.

Calling all teens (grades 6-12) who are interested in revamping the Farmington Community Library Teen Advisory Board for the coming year!

We need teens who are willing to help plan programs for their peers, step up social media interaction, and make the teen areas of the two branches the best they can be. This is a great opportunity for volunteer hours as well as learning skills that will be useful in the future.

Oh, and we’re also pretty sure it will be fun…

 

Our first TAB: Revamped! meeting was Thursday, June 30, 2016 at the downtown Farmington Branch Library. We discussed what we want the revamped Teen Advisory Board to be like, started planning programs for the new year, and agreed to start new social media accounts for teen events and news.

Our Revamped! TAB meetings will be held every month, at alternate branches. Meetings at the Farmington Hills branch will be on the third Monday of the month (with some exceptions), and meetings at the downtown Farmington branch will be on the third Wednesday of the month (with some exceptions). Dates are below.

Between September and May (9 months), with one program at each branch (x2), the Library usually hosts 18 programs for teens. Our TAB agreed to be responsible for planning and running at least two programs within every three months of the school year (6 total).

Teen social media accounts (for teens primarily, but parents of t(w)eens can also follow the accounts) are: Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram.

If you are interested in helping with content for our social media accounts, have recently read/watched/listened to a great book/movie/CD, or or have questions about how you can help, please let Merry Beth or Jennie know!
