FULTON, NY – The Fulton Public Library is launching a Teen Advisory Council in an effort to make the library more inviting to teens.
The first meeting of the group will be June 5 at 4 p.m.
The TAC will meet once a week to be a voice representing the teens in the community.
The group will advise the library on young adult book purchases, software for the computers and programming to offer.
The council will also have an active book club component, and has the possibility of screening movies.
The meetings will also include free lunches to attendees provided by OCO.
The group will meet at 4 p.m. for the remainder of the school year and then change to a 1 p.m. meeting time as of June 26.
The TAC will hold their meetings in the young adult section downstairs at the library.
The TAC will be geared for students in the Fulton community grades 7 to 12 and is facilitated by Vanessa Langdon who currently serves for AmeriCorps.
The Oswego County AmeriCorps program focuses on services for children and families.
Members mentor youth, provide fitness and nutrition education activities for youth and manage volunteers who serve their community.
Though there is a target audience anyone who wishes to have their voice heard in regards to how the library serves teens is welcome to stop by.
The group will run for one hour throughout the summer and hopefully, through student leadership, will be able to continue into the new school year.
