Teen Advisory Board

Did you know the Stillwater Library has a Teen Advisory Board?

We love teens at Stillwater Public Library! In addition to a Teen Library that has its own computer area and study room, we also have a Teen Advisory Board that meets monthly to talk about what SPL can do to make the library a place teens want to be. Through TAB, teens have a voice in materials selection and programming, while having a good time hanging out. Did we mention snacks?
