Teen Advisory Board

Five teenagers around a table in the library doing crafts and playing board games.

The Salem Public Library Teen Advisory Board is a leadership development program for middle and high school-aged youth.

Throughout the year Teen Advisory Board members work with the Teen Librarian to:

  • Assist with events and activities for children and teens
  • Raise funds for Teen Scene improvement projects
  • Take on other projects to improve library Teen Services and the library in general
  • Decorate the Teen Scene
  • Give feedback on Teen Scene materials and activities

Membership is open by application to a limited number of middle school and high school students.

Applications are open now for 2021. Anyone entering grade 6-11 may apply. We do have a particular need for middle school applicants this summer. The application deadline is July 13, 2021.
