TAB @ John F. Germany Public Library

Are finding ways to fulfill community service hours stressful for you? Do you dread some of the tasks you have to do and wish you could set your own projects? Well, if you participate in Teen Advisory Board (T.A.B.) at John F. Germany you can! The purpose of T.A.B. is to add adolescent appeal to the library: stuff that teens like. The way that this is done is simple and effective, and it benefits you too!

Teens gather to discuss what might make their peers more interested and active in the library. For example, just last Tuesday we were discussing how social networking sites can easily get information about T.A.B. out to the teenage public. We discussed the effects of Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and texting on teens while enjoying some Zebra Cakes and Sprite. Sounds fun, right? When you start attending T.A.B. you can opt to start volunteering also.

Mr. Bill, our awesome T.A.B. leader, can help you come up with a project to suit your strengths. For example, my project is writing this blog for you guys, but there are many other options too. Once you decide, you just pick the most convenient day and time and start ranking in those volunteer hours. You can even count the hour-long T.A.B. meetings we have every other Tuesday! I can honestly say as a T.A.B. member myself, that earning volunteer hours has never been as flexible, easy, or as enjoyable.

Come join us on the first and third Tuesday of the month at the John F. Germany Library at 6:30pm to start working with the T.A.B.

Hope to see you there! ~ Ariana, T.A.B. member
