What is the Teen Advisory Board?

The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) of Forsyth County Public Library’s Teen Central is designed to allow teens to incorporate themselves within the library through actively engaging in the development and participation of library events, programs, publications, and services, for all teens of the community. Members have an opportunity to provide real leadership and service to their local library and by extension to other teens in their community by having their voices heard.
