TAG

Denison Public Library
​Teen Advisory Group (TAG)

The Denison Public Library is creating a Teen Advisory Group (TAG) made up of teen volunteers (grades 7-12) who are interested in being part of the library's programs and services aimed at teen audiences.

WHAT WE DO?

The TAG's goal is to promote library services to teens and the community at the Denison Public Library by:

  • Advising, planning and implementing teen programs.
  • Consulting on design of the Teen website.
  • Writing articles, reviews and creative works for the Teen website.
  • Promoting ideas, reading, programming and expression by and for teens by creating displays in the YA area.
  • Recommending books, movies, and magazines for the YA collection.

HOW MUCH TIME COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED?

  • TAG will meet once a month at the library.
  • TAG participates in library programs, volunteer their time to work on special projects, and help make sure that teen-focused events and programs at the library run smoothly.

WHAT DO I GET OUT OF IT?

  • Having a say in materials and programs for the teens at Denison Public Library.
  • Opportunity to be creative and expressive through art and imaginative activities.
  • Personal satisfaction in serving your community and peers.
  • Something creative and fun to do!
  • ​Community service looks good on college applications and job applications.

HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?

The library is currently taking applications to be a Teen Advisory Group Member for a term of 1 year.  It doesn't matter what school you attend -- private, public or home school.  We want ideas and input from every part of Grayson County to help make our teen events the best!

If you are interested in participating in the TAG, complete the application and submit it online, at the front desk or mail it to:
