Join the Brighton District Library’s Teen Advisory Board

Interested in learning more about the Brighton District Library and helping to plan programs you and your friends would enjoy? Consider joining our Teen Advisory Board!

Help Kate Wheeler, our Teen Services Librarian, plan teen events,  create contest ideas, recommend books, and do a monthly volunteer project for the Library.

TAB will hold monthly meetings September-May, the last Thursday of the month. Teens (Grades 7-12) can register to attend as many meetings as they like. Each meeting will count as 1 hour of volunteering.  Teens needing volunteer hours will be asked to fill out an application form for the Library’s records.

During TAB’s once a month meeting we’ll talk about what the library can do to help teens with school, plan virtual teen events, future in person events, discuss current trends, plan social media campaigns, and TAB members.

  • Help spread the word about programs and services for teens at the Library.
  • Be an active library user in order to provide targeted feedback about programs and services.
  • Share your ideas at monthly TAB meetings!

Members of the Brighton District Library Teen Advisory Board must:

  • Opportunity to provide input for library decisions related to teens.
  • Members receive volunteer service credit for school.
  • Members will develop marketable leadership skills.
  • Participation can be listed on job, scholarship and college applications.

TAB is currently on hiatus. We hope for it to return in the Fall.
