Teens, Get Involved!

Teen Advi­so­ry Board

The Teen Advi­so­ry Board (TAB) pro­vides oppor­tu­ni­ties for DeKalb Coun­ty teens (ages 14 to 18 years) to enhance lead­er­ship skills by plan­ning and pro­mot­ing teen pro­grams, pro­vid­ing vol­un­teer sup­port, and allow­ing teens to make a dif­fer­ence in their community.

TAB mem­bers are required to attend and active­ly par­tic­i­pate in month­ly meet­ings. Cur­rent­ly, TAB meet­ings are held vir­tu­al­ly with mem­bers receiv­ing vol­un­teer hours upon active par­tic­i­pa­tion. If you are inter­est­ed, please com­plete the online appli­ca­tion.

Teen Library Board Representative

The pur­pose of the DeKalb Coun­ty Pub­lic Library Board of Trustees is to pro­vide cit­i­zen over­sight of the poli­cies and oper­a­tions of the library sys­tem. As such, at each meet­ing the Trustees receive a report on oper­a­tions from the Direc­tor, review the library’s bi-month­ly finan­cial report and con­sid­er pol­i­cy issues as they arise. They also pro­vide advice and coun­sel to the library direc­tor on issues under dis­cus­sion. The teen rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the library board would be appoint­ed by the Library Board of Trustees and would be advi­so­ry in nature. The teen rep­re­sen­ta­tive would be expect­ed to par­tic­i­pate in the dis­cus­sion of any issues addressed by the board as he or she wished. The goal of appoint­ing a teen library board rep­re­sen­ta­tive is to pro­vide the Trustees with a view­point on library issues under dis­cus­sion from a teen per­spec­tive.
