You know, I'm frequently asked what "TAB" is. TAB is short for "Teen Advisory Board"--a group of over 20 teens that meets at the library monthly to discuss events, work on community service projects, and talk about what's new at the library. Anyone in either 6th grade or who is over the age of 12 is welcome to join. Just a simple application letter is filled out so that we can determine your interests and what path would best fit you within the organization. For some, its books and magazines, for others it's having engaging workshops, and some teens just enjoy the free food and comradely that goes along with belonging to an organization just for teens.
It's a great way to meet new friends and to get in some of those pesky volunteer hours needed for graduation. If you're interested in joining TAB, or want to know more about what TAB does for your local Waterford community, please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 262-534-3988 ext. 15.
Next TAB meeting is August 28th at 6:30 p.m. in the community room. We will discuss future options for TAB and also work on a "Banned Books" display.
