Teen Advisory Board


TEEN ADVISORY BOARD (TAB)



What is TAB?

Loveland Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (or TAB) is for local middle + high school students who are interested in making a difference at their library. TAB members play a crucial role in:

    Planning + marketing teen events
    Developing the library’s young adult collection
    Creating a welcoming + safe environment for other teens at the library


TAB membership is a commitment of time. TAB meetings are once a month for one hour. Members will earn volunteer service credit, have a direct impact on the Teenseen at the library, + receive fines free status on their library card!
