Poestenkill Library is Forming a Teen Advisory Group
Calling all Teens! Do you want to make a difference in your community and have fun hanging out with friends while doing so? Have your parents, teachers, or guidance counselors recommended adding more extracurricular activities to your resume? Do you have ideas and suggestions for how to make the library more entertaining and inviting for teens? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider joining the new Teen Advisory Group (TAG) at the Poestenkill Library!
TAG’s mission is to expand and promote young adult services at Poestenkill Library through teen engagement, cooperation, and partnership.
As a member of TAG, teens will work with their peers and the library director to:
Provide input on how to create and maintain a cool and functional area for teens in the library
Recommend books, movies, graphic novels and other materials for the library to add to the collection
Develop young adult programs and services of interest to the local teen community
Plan and facilitate teen lead programs and events at the library
If you would like to learn more about TAG, or are interested in joining the group, please contact Donna Riley at 518-283-3721 or by email at Director@nullPoestenkilllibrary.org. A first meeting date will be scheduled for late March taking into consideration the scheduling availability of interested teens.
