About the Program

Youth Advisory Group (YAG) volunteers attend meetings to discuss the creation, development and promotion of library programs, collections, publications and spaces for teens. Add your voice to teen services and work with staff to create a library environment that is welcoming and relevant for teens.

"Volunteering with the Youth Advisory Group has given me opportunities to express my own opinions and be part of my library's community. I've been lucky to volunteer with like-minded students to help improve the library experience for teens and all library visitors."
- Arden, Youth Advisory Group volunteer

What the Volunteer Does
