From getting into college to getting a job, leadership and volunteer experience is a requirement for getting ahead.  Fayetteville Public Library is proud to offer the following volunteer experiences to teens.

TAB: Teen Advisory Board

You plan it – you enjoy it! If you’re in grade 6-12 and want a voice in planning programs and events for teens, join TAB. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet and make friends, learn and exercise new skills, start a great résumé, and have fun!


The A-Z of TAB

Alongside a Youth Services librarian, you will:

  • Attend monthly TAB meetings.
  • Be an active liaison between your school librarian and the teen librarians at FPL.
  • Chat up your friends and classmates for their ideas, then plan and lead teen programs and events they will love.
  • Help promote and publicize teen programs and events.
  • Recommend books, mags, and media to improve FPL’s collections for teens, plus review what’s already on the shelf.
  • Recruit! Recruit! Recruit!
  • Help make FPL one the best libraries in the US.

The benefits are great too!

  • Accrue community service hours for your résumé.
  • Exercise your love of literature and reading.
  • Gain leadership and teamwork experience.
  • Greater access to FPL personnel, our special events, and guests.
  • Zero to hero status as you help expand opportunities for other teens in northwest Arkansas.
