The group continues its mission to make the library more inviting to teens through weekly programming and a book club.

The first meeting of the group will be July 9 at 11:30 a.m.

The CBS will meet once a week to be a voice representing the teens in the community.

The group will have a book club component as well as weekly activities for members including; a book swap, super hero week, literary trivia, writing letters to favorite authors, movie nights, as well as any suggested activities.

Additionally the group will advise the library on young adult book purchases, software for the computers, and programming to offer.

The meetings will also include free lunches to attendees provided by Oswego County Opportunities.

Meetings will be held in the young adult section at the library.

The CBS will be geared for students in the Fulton community grades 9 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.
