The South Pasadena Public Library Teen Advisory Board is a small group of high school students dedicated to improving the library in the following ways: 

    Suggesting ideas for the teen zone 
    Practice creative brainstorming, problem solving, team building skills 

    Recommending books, movies, and music for the Library to purchase 
    Learn about how libraries build collections 

    Creating, planning, and implementing events specifically for teens 
    Get experience with event planning and coordination 

    Helping to create and maintain the Library’s social media for teens 
    Learn about marketing and promotion

The skills learned in TAB are transferable and desirable for many careers. TAB members will also earn community service hours, gain hands-on experience and the opportunity to work with professionals and build relationships.
