Meetings are for TAB members only. To join, visit www.seekonkpl.org/teens  and download the TAB application. Email the finished application to teens@seekonkpl.org  or turn it in at the Research Help Desk in the Library.

Your opinion matters! If you’re going into grades 6 through 12 this school year, then you have a chance to make a difference at your library by joining the Teen Advisory Board (TAB). Starting on September 7, we will meet once a month at 4:00 PM to share ideas about upcoming programs and discuss how we can make the most out of the library’s services for tweens and teens. This is an opportunity to practice leadership, collaboration, and civic engagement and to take an active role in shaping the library’s impact on your community. Becoming a member of the board requires a commitment to attend meetings regularly.

For more information, call Adult Services at the library at (508) 336-8230 or email teens@seekonkpl.org
