TEEN ADVISORY GROUP

What is the Teen Advisory Group?

The Teen Advisory Group is for teens who want to make the library better for themselves and other teens. The library belongs to teens as much as anyone else in the community, so we want to know what you’d like to see from us–whether it’s physical space, stuff you can borrow, programs you wish we had, or places you wish we visited.

We are meeting monthly at the Tommy Douglas library branch to discuss different topics that will help us and you make changes to the library. Snacks will be provided during the meeting, and all teens are welcome to join us for a movie and crafts afterwards.

How to Join?

All teens are welcome to join, including those who come to the library regularly and those who have never used the library before. Just drop by a meeting to see if it’s for you. All teens will receive a letter confirming their community service.

What qualifications do I need to be in the Teen Advisory Group?

Must be aged 13-18 years old,  Willing to share ideas in a group, Willing to think about issues in your community! Any questions?

Feel free to reach out to the Teen Services Librarian Andrea Lukic andrea.lukic@bpl.bc.ca by texting or calling 604-314-2480.
