Established in 2009, the teen library council offers teens in grades 6–12 the opportunity to have input in the way the library serves teens. The council meets the second Monday of every month from 5 PM to 6:30 p.m during the school year. Most months, we meet at the Cedar Mill Library, but we occasionally meet at our Bethany location. During the pandemic, meetings are virtual and through Zoom. Meeting attendance and participation in events are mandatory.
What TLC members do:
Plan, promote, and help out with teen library programs.
Attend monthly TLC meetings
Recommend books, movies, music & video games to library staff.
Recommend teen collections to the public with displays, book reviews, podcasts and social media posts.
Promote the library to their peers in person, on social media, with videos and through outreach.
Help judge art contests.
The application is currently open and will close in early June. The top candidates will be contacted for interviews. After the interview, the teen council advisers and longtime council members will make decisions on who will join the council for the next school year. Applicants will be notified after the interview process is completed.
