TAB Meeting Notes (Dec 2016)

1. Our t-shirts are ready and are being sold for $3 each. 

2. We have spent about half our budget for the year (though we'll make some back from t-shirt sales).

3.  For our spring program, we will run a mini garden program for all ages.  The date will likely be a Saturday in May

4. A reminder that at our January meeting we will be making care packages for homebound patrons.

TAB Meeting Notes (Nov 2016)

- We decided to only have snacks instead of pizza at meetings going forward.  We will use the money saved to help offset the price of t-shirts.

- We decorated the Hat of Shame

- Started brainstorming ideas for a TAB project for the spring.  Ideas include: mini gardens, tree planting, story writing/swapping, a book swap one more time.  We'll continue thinking of ideas at our next meeting.

- Our next meeting will be Monday, Dec. 19th from 6:30 - 8 pm (note the extra half hour!).  We'll be having a little party and gift exchange - if you want to participate please bring a wrapped gift (used is great!) worth no more than $5.

TAB Meeting Notes (Oct 2016)

- For a service project we will plan to make cards and small gifts (bags of candy or similar) for homebound patrons.  We will do this during our January meeting.

- We voted on having blue shirts made with a one-sided design.  They will say "Westland Public Library" and "Teen Advisory Board".  There will be a sombrero on the T.  Shirts will cost approximately $10 - we will pay for half from the TAB budget and anyone who wants a shirt will pay $5.

- December meeting will be 1.5 hours to allow for more party time.  We will have a white elephant gift exchange and people will be encouraged to wear (ugly) sweaters

- We didn't decide about spending less money on food - need to discuss at the next meeting.

Our next meeting will be Monday, November 28, at 6:30 pm.  See you then!
