Teen Advisory Board 2017

Our 2017/2018 Teen Advisory Board


 

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…

 

Upcoming 2018-2019 TAB meeting dates are:

Wednesday, July 18, 6:30-8:30, Main Library – Fall planning session

Monday, September 17, 6:30-8:30, Main Library, Conference Room A

Wednesday, October 17, 6:30-8:30, Farmington Branch

Monday, November 19, 6:30-8:30, Main Library

Wednesday, December 19, 6:30-8:30, Farmington Branch

Monday, January 14, 6:30-8:30, Main Library

Wednesday, February 20, 6:30-8:30, Farmington Branch

Monday, March 18, 6:30-8:30, Main Library

Wednesday, April 17, 6:30-8:30, Farmington Branch

Monday, May 20, 6:30-8:30, Main Library

 

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 Jennie or Shira know!

 

Our first TAB: Revamped! meeting was Thursday, June 30, 2016 at the downtown Farmington Branch Library. We discussed what we wanted 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 are held every month during the school year, 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).

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). They have actually been responsible for organizing the majority of the programming since 2016, including during Summer Reading.
