People of all ages are invited to play.  $5 fee per-person or $15 a foursome. This is the only fundraiser the Teen Advisory Board annually sponsors and the funds raised will be used for teen library material purchase, future events, speakers and programs.


There will be a driving range (for prizes) in the meeting room $1 will get you 3 wiffle golf balls to try to hit a prize. 

Mini Golf Hole sponsorships are needed! $75 a hole, gets your name on the hole to support the Library Teen Board and their library programs, materials and events.  Each of the 9 holes will be unique.  With your sponsorship the TAB members will create a theme of your choice. Your name or business will be prominently featured at the hole. Driving Range prizes are also sought if you would like to  donate a prize or the funds to purchase a prize.  Your name or business will be featured on the prize.  Members of TAB are out in the community gathering support.

80 plus years in the making...

Stuff for the Teen Age

For 80 years, New York Public Library staff shared the best titles for teens in an annual list called Books for the Teen Age.
Last year, Books for the Teen Age became Stuff for the Teen Age, a multimedia, multi-format, targeted, and teen-tested list of the best of the year in teen books, music, graphic novels, movies, games, and more.

This year, Stuff for the Teen Age becomes a blog.

We started with this list of the 100 best titles of last year, and we’ll be posting about our picks from the list, our picks from the current year, and a variety of other topics related to teen books and media.
