Programs

Teen Advisory Board

Middle and High School students

 

Calling all teens (grades 6-12) 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…

 

We’ll put the finishing touches on winter programs at this meeting, and talk about upcoming volunteer opportunities.

 

Please register so we know you’re coming. Drop-ins are also welcome.
