What is TASC?

The Teen Advisory and Service Committee is a forum for teens in grades 7-12:

  • To have fun and meet other teens
  • To have a voice in planning library activities for teens
  • To help librarians with programs and events for children
  • To gain leadership and basic job skills while earning community services hours
