Teen Advisory Board Updates

Thanks to all of you who came out for last week’s Teen Advisory Board meeting. It was nice to see some new faces! Without further ado, I’d like to name this year’s TAB officers. Congratulations!

  • Senior President: Faith Wilkins
  • Senior Vice President: Kate Kisor
  • Senior Secretaries: Hannah Tucker & Jennifer Loboccetta

Our senior officers help run meetings, make school visits, promote high school programs, and more!

  • Junior President: Lizzie Lepre
  • Junior Vice President: Taylor Nelson

Our junior officers suggest and promote middle school programs and lead us off on our “Last Best Book?” wrap up at the end of every meeting.

So what else happened at the last meeting? We made some decisions about our Halloween Lock-In, which will take place on Oct. 26th from 5pm to 9pm. TAB has planned a bunch of fun things to scare and entertain you, so please come! You must be in 6th grade or older to attend.

Our Halloween Lock-In will feature:

  • A haunted house (really!!)
  • Cosplay contest
  • Pin the head on the zombie
  • Pumpkin carving contest
  • Halloween trivia contest
  • Bobbing for apples
  • And a chance to share your own ghost story (or just listen to others…)

You can register for the Halloween Lock-In right here or call the Help Desk at (845) 986-1047 ext. 3. See you there!

Teen Advisory Board elections this Saturday!

Hello everyone,

It’s time for TAB again! TAB meets this Saturday, September 21st at 2pm in the Community Room. New members are always welcome! TAB is a planning group ages 12 to 18 that meet once a month to plan teen events at the library.

Since it’s our first meeting of the season, elections will be held for our TAB officers. Serving as a TAB officer will give you great leadership skills you’ll need for National Honors Society, your college application, and even looks good to your future employer.

A few things to know about our TAB officers:

  • TAB Officers will be nominated and elected at the first meeting of each new school year by our TAB members.
  • Officer positions will be President, Vice President, and Secretary. There will be two sets of each, one set of high school students (Senior Officers) and one set of middle school students (Junior Officers).
  • All officers should be prepared to discuss ideas for upcoming teen programs at the library. All ideas can be emailed directly to the Teen Advisor to be included on the next meeting’s agenda.
  • In addition to contributing program ideas, officers should all be involved in actively promoting these programs to other teens.
  • Meeting agendas will be emailed to all officers at least one week prior to each meeting. Officers are free to make changes. Please email the Teen Advisor and all other officers with any changes made.
  • Officers’ meetings will be held once every two months beyond the regularly scheduled TAB meetings for Senior Officers.

Interested?We’ll be going over all of the individual duties of each officer before nominations are held. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment, or email me directly at daimone@rcls.org.

See you there!
