Teen Advisory Board

hey! a bookcart shaped like a bus!Are you opinionated? Are you creative? Do you want to earn volunteer hours? Do you like food? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re the perfect candidate for the Teen Advisory Board (TAB). Our next meeting is Monday, February 28th @ 4:30 pm in the first floor Meeting Room.  We’ll be working on our decorated book cart for the Houston Art Car Parade.

What exactly is TAB, you might ask? The Freeman TAB provides an excellent leadership opportunity to local teens who provide input on Library programming and events, Library materials, and marketing. TAB members also participate in special volunteer and community-oriented projects.
