Teen Advisory Council for Youth (TACY)

Joining TACY gives you a voice in what happens at the library. We are a fun, open, awesome group of teens that is always welcoming new members!

As part of the group, you will:

  • suggest materials for the library to purchase;
  • help promote and run teen programs;
  • get creative about what you’d like teen services at the library to look like;
  • meet other teens in the community;
  • earn volunteer hours;
  • give your resume a boost of community engagement.

We also do fun things like movie and game nights, Star Wars extravaganza and more!
Meetings are once a month (usually Thursday after school) and there is no need to register – you can just show up! Check out the events page on our website for the next meeting date.

  • In grades 9 through 12
  • Patience and enthusiasm
  • Strong English-language skills and an ability to communicate well
  • A willingness to work and cooperate with fellow teens and coordinators

Will I be trained as a Leader?
