Teen Advisory Board TAB


What is the TAB?

The Franklin Park Public Library Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teen volunteers who are interested in making a difference at the library. The TAB assists the Information & Digital Services Department in a variety of tasks, and their efforts have a direct impact on the collection, programming, and services for kids and teens.


Who can join the TAB?

The TAB welcomes all teens ages 13-18 years old.


When can TAB members volunteer?

TAB members work with Library staff to create a schedule that works for everyone.


Where is the TAB?

TAB members primarily volunteer to help in Kids Crossing and the Square.


Why should you join the TAB?

  • Because you love books, movies, music, and food!
  • Because the library is not just a place to study. It can be a fun place to hang out!
  • Because being a TAB member earns you service hours and looks really nice on college and job applications.
  • Because your input is important to the library, and your service makes a difference.
  • Because it’s free!
