All DeKalb County Library branches will be closed Monday, May 29, 2023 in honor of Memorial Day.
The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) provides opportunities for DeKalb County teens (ages 14 to 18 years) to enhance leadership skills by planning and promoting teen programs, providing volunteer support, and allowing teens to make a difference in their community.
TAB members are required to attend and actively participate in monthly meetings. Members will receive volunteer hours for attendance. If you are interested, please complete the online application.
The Library now has a Teens Instagram account. It is a place for teens to learn and connect about books, events, Library programs and resources that are specifically of interest to teens in DeKalb County.
The purpose of the DeKalb County Public Library Board of Trustees is to provide citizen oversight of the policies and operations of the library system. As such, at each meeting the Trustees receive a report on operations from the Director, review the library’s bi-monthly financial report and consider policy issues as they arise. They also provide advice and counsel to the library director on issues under discussion. The teen representative on the library board would be appointed by the Library Board of Trustees and would be advisory in nature. The teen representative would be expected to participate in the discussion of any issues addressed by the board as he or she wished. The goal of appointing a teen library board representative is to provide the Trustees with a viewpoint on library issues under discussion from a teen perspective.
