NJ Teen Advisory Board Summit Invitation

Whether your teens are organized into a formal TAB or not, you and your teens are cordially invited to this year’s TAB Summit!

The purpose of this Teen Advisory Board Summit is to allow teens from libraries across New Jersey to meet and interact. The realization that their experiences are only one part of the New Jersey Library community is an invaluable asset. Connecting with like-minded young adults from across the state will enable them to appreciate their own areas of service, give them ideas for future improvements, and make ties for future collaboration.

Librarians, we want you and your teens to enjoy and treasure this experience. The number of teens that are in your group is unimportant: their passion and commitment to their library are all that we want to highlight and share. We know you have great teens and that you love working with them. This is their chance (and yours) to show all that the TAB does for your library and share those experiences with a wider audience.

The 2018 TAB Summit will be held at:

Montville Township Public Library
90 Horseneck Road
Montville, NJ 07045


Saturday, April 21st 

To register for the TAB Summit, please contact Jeff Cupo (Montville's Young Adult/Community Services Librarian) at:" target="_blank"> by March 20th, 2018.  

Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Please emphasize to teens and their parents the honor of attending a statewide initiative. We will be giving out certificates of attendance at the event for student records, which may be an incentive to participate.

Please include how many teens will be attending and if possible, a list of their names. Each participating library is encouraged to bring a snack to share with all attendees, please include what you wish to bring in your registration email.

At least one librarian MUST attend with their group.

Groups are invited to share a brief presentation to introduce who they are and what they do at, with, or for their libraries. This presentation can come in any form but should not exceed 3 minutes. The introduction is really about the teens and the Teen Advisory Board as it relates to your teens and your library. They can show off moments or events that they loved and are proud of or simply introduce themselves.

We are including a template on how to speak with parents and their teens to encourage them to attend, in person or in writing. Please feel free to use this template, adjusting as needed.

Feel free to reach out to any libraries who aren’t on this list so that they too may join in the fun.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out! We hope to see many of you at this year’s summit!
