Teen Advisory Board
The Orange County Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is made up of teen volunteers (ages 13-18) who are interested in being a part of the library’s programs and services aimed at a middle- and high-school aged audience.
Donate Video Games
Beginning November 16, 2013 TAB will be accepting donated video games in an effort to start a Video Game collection at the Library. Donate your gently used games so other kids can check them out & play them too! We will accept donations for any console gaming system that uses the standard disc format (games that look like DVDs) – this includes Wii, Playstation and Xbox games.
What Do TAB Members Do?
TAB members attend monthly board meetings in order to share their ideas, help to plan future events/services for teens, and work toward making the library a teen-friendly space in our community.
TAB members participate in library programs, volunteer their time to work on special projects, and help make sure that teen-focused events and programs at the library run smoothly.
TAB members act as ambassadors for the Library by getting their friends involved, sharing information about upcoming library events with friends and teachers at school, and bringing back input and suggestions from the community.
How do I become a member?
The Library is currently accepting applications to become a Teen Advisory Board member for the 2013-2014 school year. It doesn’t matter which school you attend – private, public or homeschool. We want ideas and input from every part of Orange County to help make our teen services great!
If you are interested in participating in TAB, complete the application form online here, or you can print one out to complete and turn in to the library. If you would like to mail in your application, you can send it to Teen Advisory Board, Orange County Main Library, 137 W. Margaret Ln., Hillsborough, NC 27278.
Once we receive your application, we will contact you with details about the availability of a position in TAB. Thank you for your interest – we look forward to hearing your ideas and working together!
