What is the Teen Advisory Group?
The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is a diverse, inclusive group of teens from the Burnaby community interested in championing and improving teen library services in Burnaby. The overall goal of TAG is to help improve teen library engagement. TAG advises plans, creates and promotes library services as the voice of the teen Burnaby community.
We are meeting at the Tommy Douglas library branch the first Wednesday of every month (unless theres a holiday!) to discuss different topics that will help us and you make changes to the library. Food will be provided during the meeting, and all teens are welcome to join us for a movie after the meeting. Teen may apply TAG service to volunteer hours.
How to Join?
All teens are welcome to join, including those who come to the library regularly and those who have never used the library before. Just drop by a meeting to see if it's for you. All teens will receive a letter confirming their community service to the library.
What qualifications do I need to be in the Teen Advisory Group?
- Entering grade 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 in the fall
- Willing to share ideas in a group
- Willing to think about issues in your community
I have a food or movie request!
