Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Conyers-Rockdale Library Teen Advisory Board is to encourage middle and high school students (ages 13 to 18) to become involved users of the library through the promotion of reading and participation in the library.

What is TAB?

The Conyers-Rockdale Library Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of dedicated, involved middle and high school students who are interested in making a difference at their library. TAB members play a critical role in developing the library’s young adult collection, young adult outreach, program planning and marketing, and making the library a friendlier place for young adults.

TAB membership is a commitment of time; TAB meetings are once a month for one hour. Members are expected to participate in a TAB Quarterly Project and will have a direct impact on the young adult section of the library.
