T.A.B. (Teen Advisory Board)

At the Hudson Area Library, we believe teens hold the key to the future. We want to help them unlock it by offering fun leadership opportunities.

We’re looking for active members for our Teen Advisory Board (TAB), a group comprised of teens in grades 6-12. The board meets one Friday each month, and members also participate in programs. We count on TAB members to tell us about the kinds of books, magazines, movies, and music they’d like to see at the library.

We believe teen involvement gives youth a more authentic library experience. TAB members help ensure the Library is a teen-friendly place and that we’re planning programs teens actually want to attend with their friends.

For teens, TAB service boosts their confidence, teaches them how to manage time and resources, gives them a sense of ownership in the library, and offers a chance to acquire community service hours. Teens can make new friends and mentor younger members.

We ask TAB applicants to fill out a short form that asks about their interests, ideas, favorite genres and special skills.
