Young Adult Council: Previously known as TAB, YAC will be starting up in September. YAC is a way for teens to communicate what they would like to see at their library. The council meets with me on a monthly basis; we chat about new books, things you want to see at the library and plan for events to be held for teens. YAC is a great way to get involved in your community and have your voice heard. We are always welcoming newcomers to our table. Signing up to join will be made available Wednesday, Sept. 4, with the first meeting held on Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 3:30. Meetings range from 30 minutes to an hour.
