Join the Teen Advisory Board

Help the library by joining the Teen Advisory Board. If you're in middle school or high school and enjoy coming to the Westland Library, consider joining TAB. We meet the last Tuesday of each month at 7, and the next meeting is Jan. 25th. Have a say in YA by helping us plan programs, pick out books, and design book displays for the Teen Area.

If you're interested, stop in at the library and fill out a short registration form, or simply pick one up at the next meeting.

We'll feed you dinner at each meeting!
