T.A.B.--Volunteering @ the Library

Last month T.A.B. members played games for prizes, ate snacks, went on a scavenger hunt, created colored sand for a program, made scary heads for the Fall Festival's haunted room, made craft samples, and created a great bulletin board in the Children's Program Room. This month they painted pumpkins, went on a photo hunt, played games, ate, cut crafts, won prizes, AND...they all earned volunteer time.

Do you want to have a say in what the library is doing for teens? Do you want to help plan programs? Perform in puppet shows? Help with other jobs @ the library? Earn volunteer time while having fun? The Teen Advisory Board may be for you. You just have to be at least 12 years old and fill out a volunteer form. Then join the fun!

We meet on the 1st Monday of each month 5-6pm. The next meeting willl be Mon. Nov. 2.

On Sat. Oct. 17 T.A.B. will host the library's 5th annual Fall Festival. It all started when members of T.A.B. were discussing what they wanted to do during Teen Read Week and decided they wanted to do something for the community. The Fall Festival features games, pie throwing, pumpkin bowling, crafts, face painting, library golf, & more. 60 people attended the first year. Last year over 250 kids and adults enjoyed the fun. There's still time to sign up to volunteer. Just talk to Linda at the library.
