Teen Advisory Board

The Pemberton Library is looking for teens in grades 6-12 to join the Teen Advisory Board (TAB). 
We need your suggestions for programs and Young Adult materials, such as books, movies, magazines, CDs, video games, etc.
Earn volunteer hours and have your voice heard! Did we mention it looks good on a college application? Or even a job application?

TAB meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm. 

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, December 1st. Members will be decorating the library for the holiday season and discussing upcoming programs for December, January & February. We would really appreciate your input!

Don't forget to check out the new TAB review box located on the NEW BOOK display. The box was decorated by the members of TAB with spin art! Enter book or movie reviews in the box and we'll post them in the library!

Questions about the TAB program? E-mail Miss Theresa at and she'll get back to you!
