What is TAB?
The Teen Advisory Board is a group of middle and high school students who meet every month to plan and promote exciting teen programs at the DeSoto Public Library. They are committed to encouraging teen recreational reading, promoting teen literacy, and participating in community service projects.
Do you have a great idea for a teen program? Would you like to recommend books, movies, or other library materials? Would you like to meet new people? Then join TAB.
TAB has created a teen space at the library created just for you. The Spot - 'where style meets creativity'
