TEEN ADVISORY BOARD (TAB)
What is TAB?
Loveland Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (or TAB) is for local middle + high school students who are interested in making a difference at their library. TAB members play a crucial role in:
- Planning + marketing teen events
- Developing the library’s young adult collection
- Creating a welcoming + safe environment for other teens at the library
TAB membership is a commitment of time. TAB meetings are once a month for one hour. Members will earn volunteer service credit, have a direct impact on the Teenseen at the library, + receive fines free status on their library card!
