South Pasadena Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board will be busy!
By Cathy Billings
Last month, South Pasadena Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) launched its sixth cohort, consisting of high school-aged volunteers dedicated to helping and improving the library.
This semester, TAB has eight returning students and ten first-time members. They have already provided feedback on a tutorial created by library staff for SPUSD’s e-book platform SORA. They studied the history of zines and made their own at home. Now they are testing the library’s new mobile app to provide the library with feedback before the app goes live.
Throughout the spring, TAB will help the Library with a variety of ongoing projects, as well as advise on aspects of the Summer Reading Program for teens.
Check-out TAB Recommends, a list of reading recommendations for teens made by the fall TAB cohort. TAB members decided what genres to include and what books went under each genre.
