Teen Advisory Board

Teen Advisory Board 2017

Our 2017/2018 Teen Advisory Board


 

Calling all teens (grades 6-12) who are interested in serving on 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…

 

Under the current health situation, we don’t know when we will have in-person programming and volunteer opportunities available.

 

TAB meetings will be held digitally through Zoom until further notice.

Please register so that we can send you the invitation link.

 

Upcoming 2020-2021 TAB meeting dates are:

Monday, September 21, 6:30-8:30 p.m. – outdoor at Liberty St. Location, weather permitting

Wednesday, October 21, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Monday, November 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Wednesday, December 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Wednesday, April 21, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Monday, May 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

 
We will update meeting formats and information as possible.

 

Registration is required for digital meetings.

 

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).

We will keep this schedule as much as possible with current digital meetings.

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.
