Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

The Scarborough Public Library Teen Advisory Board is a group of teens in grades 6-12 who are interested in becoming more involved in the library. Teens work with the Youth Services librarian to give input on the Young Adult collection; help lead/create programming; volunteer at events; organize community service projects; and influence how the library serves teens.

TAB instills a sense of pride and responsibility for the programming and collection and offers members a deeper relationship with the Library.

A sampling of events planned and hosted by our TAB:

  • The Library Lock-In held in June to kick off summer reading and in late October
  • Afterschool movie matinees
  • Special themed parties (Harry Potter, Star Wars, Video Game Characters)

If interested, contact Youth Services, 883-4723 option 3 or kids [at] scarboroughlibrary.org

When: Every Tuesday during the school year from 3-4pm
Where: Library Meeting Room
