Teen Advisory Board (TAB, for short)

Last fall a group of teens who regularly use the Solon Public Library took steps to unite and organize a board aimed at the interests of middle and high school students. Under the direction of Deena Foss, youth services coordinator, the group of teens created a five-person Teen Advisory Board (TAB), whose main goal is to encourage teens to enjoy the library. Planning to meet once per month, this energetic board has met several times a month to get the organization off the ground.
