Teen Advisory Groups


The Asian Branch Teen Advisory Board (TAB) meets to express ideas, organize upcoming teen activities, and suggest new teen programs for the branch. They also help to choose library materials, and decorate the teen area of the library. TAB members can earn community service hours and meet new friends.

The Asian Branch TAB meets once a month of third Thursdays from 4:00-5:00pm. Contact the Asian Library at (510) 238-3400 for more information.
