Teen Advisory Board

Giving teens a chance to make a difference.

Blow off some steam, help design projects and programs for the Library, and meet new friends along the way when you join a Teen Advisory Board (TAB).

  • Satisfy your school’s community service requirements
  • Gain useful leadership and project management experience to add to your college applications to make you stand out from the pack
  • Meet and collaborate with other teens who also want to make a difference

Teen Instagram Takeover Watch Party
We asked Sacramento teens, “What makes you strong?” Now teens are invited to join our official watch party on Friday, Jan. 29 at 4 p.m. as the answers take over our official @saclib Instagram account! Jump into Zoom with us to watch the live reveal of each submission, dive into mini art challenges, and celebrate teens’ creativity and strength. All teens are welcome! Email stab@saclibrary.org for the official invite link.

Have Questions?
How do I join the Teen Advisory Board at my local library?

Ask a librarian at your local library, check the event calendar for upcoming TAB meetings or email us. Not all of our 28 locations have a TAB yet, but most offer volunteer opportunities.

How do I join the Systemwide Teen Advisory Board?

Email us to let us know you’re interested. Meetings are typically the third Saturday of the month from noon to 2 p.m. at McClatchy Library.

What initiatives do Teen Advisory Boards work on?

TAB members volunteer their time to create and implement programming that both supports the Library and better serves teens at the Library. Past initiatives include voter registration drives and de-stress programs with therapy dogs to support students during finals week.
