Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Meeting

Friday, January 15
03:30 pm to 04:30 pm

I hope everyone had a great winter break! The Youth Advisory Committee Meetings will resume on Friday, January 15 at 3:30 pm!

We are currently looking for new members between the ages of 13-18.

What's changed: We will now be meeting via a mix of Zoom and Discord. For each meeting you attend, you will receive a $5.00 pizza coupon credit from Dominos. When if you hit $20 (or we reach the end of the year in June, whichever is first!), you'll receive a gift card!

What's the same: You still get to: boss staff around, help plan teen events, give feedback on corny advertisements, earn volunteer credit, receive a reference letter after 6 or more months/meetings, get sneak peeks on upcoming things at the Library

What are we talking about this month? Winter programs, new book recommendations, the Book Box Takeout (name pending), Teen Games Night, the Teen Summer Takeover, and more!

What is Discord? Discord is a free chat program that allows for text, voice, and video chatting. Penticton Public Library hosts a server for teens where they can get help from a librarian, information about upcoming events, event sneak peeks, book recommendations, and more! Want an invite to the server? Email Lara at lharker@summer.com OR message me on Discord @LibraryLara4475. You can download Discord here

Ages:
Teens 13 to 18
