Would you love to make a difference in your community and offer your voice and ideas to your local library? The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens from the Palmyra area who have an interest in their library and the future of their library. The TAB will provide input on what kinds of programs, events, activities, and even books they’d like to see the library provide.

Where and When does TAB meet?

TAB members commit to meeting once a month at the library to discuss books, movies, teen issues, and to plan and implement programs! The meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
