TEEN ADVISORY BOARD (TAB)

TAB is our Teen Advisory Board! Their mission is to make a difference in our library by encouraging teens to become life-long members and actively develop, implement and promote teen events and community service in Clayton and surrounding areas. TAB hosts a couple of regular monthly events (listed below) and also holds contest and special events during the year.

TAB hosts a free Teen Game Night EVERY 2nd Thursday of the month from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Bring your own game or learn to play ours! Meets year-round, except during breaks for the month of August and December.

TAB is starting a new Teen Book Review book club on EVERY 3rd Thursday of the month from 5 - 6 p.m.

TAB events are for middle and high school students.
