Teen Advisory Group (TAG)

Hyperlink to NSTeens

Who better to tell the Library what really interests middle school library patrons than the teens themselves? That's why Pennington Library relies on the Teen Advisory Group (TAG), a group of young adults who volunteer to support, develop and grow our youth-geared Library programs and collections. 

You can make a difference!
TAG Logo

TAG is an informal group of students who advise, supervise, promote and initiate a variety of programs offered at the Library all year long. They assist with special programming such as the annual Pennington Business Sponsored Holiday Walk. Last December, TAG performed a puppet show, 'The Holiday Troll', that was a terrific hit!  TAG also assists with the Library's summer reading program. Last summer, the children's reading program, 'Discover, Read, Imagine', was a wonderful success with the assistance of TAG members.

TAG members also have the opportunity to influence how the Library's collection grows. They help select new library materials such as books, magazines, and DVDs.

If you are interested in joining TAG, please contact Tara Russell at 609.737.0404 or email at TAG Coordinator.
