Teen Advisory Group

West Orange Public LibraryTAG members are teens ages 13+  who are passionate about and dedicated to making sure the library is meeting the needs and wants of teens in the community.  TAG members are highly reliable and committed to being actively involved with the library. Active members also earn volunteer hours for participation.

  • - Plan, promote, and run special events for teens 
  • - Help out at Youth Services events
  • Help develop and prepare passive activities for the Teen Zone room
  • - Suggest items to add to the library's teen collection (such as books, comics, movies, etc.)
  • - Help develop content for the library website by contributing to video and/or written book reviews 
  • - Help with other areas as decided by the Teen Librarian and active TAG members
