Teen Advisory Group: Teen Volunteers

tagThe Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is made up of middle and high school students who have united together to make a difference at the public library.

TAG members will:

  • Help plan teen programming
  • Give book recommendations
  • Voice opinions on library matters
  • Run program activities
  • Have fun with other students of the same age

Our intention is to form a committee of secondary school students to help lead and guide the members. They will vote on suggestions brought up by members and present them to the library staff or library board as needed.

Based on member interests and ages, we will also form sub-groups. The purpose is to give each sub-group a project to work on and plan to present for the next meeting. Subgroups will include efforts towards creating craft events, book clubs, technology programs, drama group events, volunteering opportunities, and more.

To apply, fill out both application forms. All teens need to fill out the TAG application. Ages 16+ need to fill out all pages of the volunteer application packet and will have a background check and substance test. Ages 12-15 need to fill out the application pages of the volunteer application packet. Forms can be picked up at the library or downloaded here. Turn in completed forms at the library or email them to youth@harlingenlibrary.com.
