TAG, You’re It!

If you've been enjoying the awesome activities at the library this summer, now is your chance to get involved.  If you will be between grades 6-12 this fall, you can apply to join the Fairbanks Library Teen Advisory Group (TAG).  TAG members help to plan, prepare, and present teen programs.  You’ll earn volunteer hours, meet new people, develop leadership skills, work as a team, and attend fun programs.  Members will need to be available to attend monthly meetings, and when possible, attend programs to help set up and clean up.  The final meeting of the summer is Friday, August 5, at 3:00 PM, in the library meeting room, following the teen movie screening.  Just print the application below, or pick one up at the library, and don't forget to get it signed.  See you there!
