This is a teen leadership group that advises staff about library spaces, events, and materials for teens. Teens may apply to join by completing a Teen Advisor Membership Application. Applications are also available at the library in the teen area and at the Youth Services desk. The Society meets in the Storytime Room at the library on the 3rd Fridays of the month from 4:30-6pm, then stays to help set up for the Teen Takeovers on those nights.
