Teen Advisory Group (TAG) Meeting

Young Adults in the 6th-12th Grade are invited to take part in the first quarterly meeting of the Malden Public Library’s ‘Teen Advisory Group’ or TAG board.

The TAG will advise our Information Librarian in charge of the Young Adult department on what books to buy, what programs to run, and how to make the library more fun for teens. Our meeting will be in the Program Room of the library from 4:00-5:00 PM on Thursday, September 20th.

Members of the TAG board will get free books, and we will have snacks and drinks for our meetings. In addition to doing it for fun it looks great on college applications and resumes. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail librarian Patrick Brennan at pbrennan@maldenpubliclibrary.org.
