The Hudson Area Joint Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens in 6th – 12th grade committed to helping the Library and the community.  Members meet the second Wednesday of each month from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. to help with the planning and implementation of teen programs, recommend materials for the library to purchase and talk about ways to make the teen library experience better.

Mission Statement:

The Mission of the Teen Advisory Board is to provide teens a place to express their opinions, make friends, and connect with the community, while volunteering at the Library.  Teens come together to assist the Library in developing and implementing library youth and teen programs, and create a fun and comfortable atmosphere for teens at the Library.

To join, fill out a TAB application and turn it into the Youth Services desk. For questions, call 715-386-3101.
