New Officers and New TEEN Book Club starting up!

Thank you to everyone who came to the meeting Friday. We got a lot accomplished in a short time. First off, from here on out, the TAB meetings will be on the second Monday of the month at 6pm unless otherwise agreed upon. This seems to fit best with everyone’s schedules.

We will be starting a monthly teen book club. I will be working with our new officers to create a list of books and from there we will have a TAB-wide vote to choose.

TAB will also be taking over the display on the teen table in the YA area of the library. Each month a different person will be in charge of designing and setting up the display. There will be a sign-up sheet incoming.

I have created a Facebook group for the TAB that I will invite everyone who submits their TAB application to join. This will be a good way for us all to communicate and easily discuss issues and plans. If you don’t have a Facebook page, I would encourage you to create one, even if it’s just for TAB.

Lastly, because it’s fun to string you along, we voted on our officers at Friday’s meeting and the results are below. Thanks again to everyone who ran.

President: Cynthia Terry
Vice-President: Dylan Coutermash

Secretary: Olivia Felland

TAB Advisor Ian Holmes
