January Meeting Recap

We made 15 fleece scarves to donate to people in need - thank you!

At our January meeting we also voted on what events you would like to do this summer during summer reading.  The most popular events were: Mask Making/Masquerade Ball, Ukelele Lessons or Drum Circle, Talent Show, and Circus Skills Workshop.  I'll make those my highest priority to get on the schedule for this summer.

See you at the February meeting on 2/23 at 6:30!

November Meeting Recap

At the November meeting, we discussed what we want to have on this website (agendas, meeting notes/recaps of what we do, and upcoming meeting dates).

We also created a schedule for the display case in the teen area.  Each month there will be a different theme and a different person responsible.

We also decided to have a White Elephant gift exchange at our next meeting.

We postponed talking about a music contest and a community service project until next month's meeting.

TAB 2014-15

Welcome to the Teen Advisory Board for the 2014-15 school year!

The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of leaders in 7th-12th grade who want to improve their library and community. 

TAB meets once a month during the school year, usually on the last Monday of the month.  We do a variety of activities at meetings, such as planning special events for teens, working on service projects, creating displays and posters, or picking out prizes for contests.  Pizza is served at every meeting.

This year's officers are:

President: Iris C.

Vice President: Maureen N.

Secretary: Sarah H.

Public Relations Officer: Lola S.

If you would like to join TAB, come to a meeting or email Jody (the teen librarian) at jody.wolak@westlandlibrary.org for more information.
