Program Type:Board Meeting
This month we'll be having our Holiday Party with pizza, snacks, games and a book swap (books for swap will be provided by SPL Teen Services Department). It will be in-person only. Please register below so we know how many people to prepare for. New members are welcome! We hope to see you on December 12, at 7pm.
Beginning in January 2024, we will go back to our usual monthly format where Teen Advisory Board meetings are for Scarsdale residents in middle school, junior high, high school, or homeschool students wanting to get involved with the community hub which is the Scarsdale Public Library. You can earn community service credit when you meet with your peers and teen library specialist(s) to discuss what you want from your public library's Teen Services Department. Teen Advisory Board (TAB) members are responsible for:
- input into what programs teens want the Library to offer and when they should be scheduled;
- ideas for programs/classes teens want to lead/teach for teens (#ByTeensForTeens #BTFT) or other age groups;
- help promoting programs to classmates and other community members;
- creative contributions to our social media channels (especially Instagram and TikTok);
- ideas for how to decorate and equip the Teen Room and Makerspace;
- requests about what books we should order and in what formats; and
- suggestions for partnerships with teachers/organizations where overlap exists between their purposes and those of Scarsdale Public Library, whose mission is to encourage the joy of reading, the exploration of ideas, and the pursuit of lifelong learning for all residents of our community.
