Teen Advisory board (TAB) is a way for the teens of Kalamazoo to talk with the staff of their local library. The group meets the first Wednesday of every month at the Central library in the Van Deusen Room, from 3:30 to 5 pm. These meetings are lead by Stewart Fritz and are welcome for all 7th through 12th graders. Snacks and drinks are provided, as well as games after the meeting is done.
This month there was an announcement that there would be a new TAB meeting every third week of the month as well as the first week. This is run by Karen Santamaria. It’s called TAB+. We will also be reviewing books and talking about what we are currently reading. It’s a combination of Galley group and TAB. It “unofficially” starts January 19th.
Film Fest submissions are due January 22! This year’s film festival is being held at the Rave Theater in downtown Kalamazoo. TAB Volunteers get to see all the films. It is taking place on February 27th at 2:30 PM.
At the last meeting we added a volunteer aspect. Ready to Read is a program that gives books out to babies, toddlers, and young children. It also has volunteers read to kids at the library. TAB helped organize books for the Ready to Read organization.
So if any of this interests you, come to the next meeting on February 2nd.
I’ll be there.
