Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Meeting

Friday, October 12
03:45 pm to 05:15 pm

If you want to boss the library around, are a superstar event planner, have stellar skills for finding books, comics, dvds & more that teens will love that we can fill our shelves with, AND want free pizza - we want you! The YAC is a group of teens aged 13-18 who tell us at the library how we're doing as well as plan our monthly teen events.

During this meeting we'll be finalizing last minute details for the Halloween program (tomorrow, Saturday the 13th!) and planning out activities and food for the upcoming Harry Potter night in November! Since it's happening the same month as the second Fantastic Beasts movie is released, I sense we could do a theme about that. Scavenger hunts for nifflers, anyone?

Oh yeah - did we mention the free pizza? Drop-in, grab a bite, and share your thoughts. YAC members can also get volunteer credit for their grad portfolio!

Ages:
Teens 13 to 18
