We've taken our Teen Advisory Group (TAG) online and we are now meeting every week.  This is a great time to stop by and see what we do.  

TAG is a group of teens, ages 13 to 17, who meet to help the library figure out how to best serve teens and others. It's a great opportunity to build leadership skills, work on creative projects, and meet new people. 

We are currently working on a list of favorite books that are downloadable from the library's catalog. You can see the list so far on our Pinterest board, TAG Recommendations. Perhaps you have some ideas to add? TAG is also working on a social media challenge to invite people to create and post their dream library. 

If you have questions or would like to join us, email me at lowem@buffalolib.org to get the link to the meeting via Zoom.

  • Saturday, May 9, 23, and 30, 1:30-3:00 (no group May 16)

We've taken Central's Teen Advisory Group (TAG) online, so now  is a great time to stop by and see what we do.  

TAG is a group of teens, ages 13 to 17, who meet once a month to help the library figure out how to best serve teens and others. It's a great opportunity to build leadership skills, work on creative projects, and meet new people. 

What have we done in the past? We've planned and hosted tween manga parties, created displays of our favorite books, helped the library at local comicons, made videos to promote Summer Reading programs, and so much more! 

If you would like to join us this weekend, email me at lowem@buffalolib.org to get the link to the meeting via Zoom.
