Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

TAB logo

TAB is a lunchtime book club that is open to all students. School and public librarians chose over 30 newly published, buzz-worthy books which the Friends of the Arlington Public Library purchased for our library. These books are set aside to be read by TAB members. TAB usually meets twice a month with the DHMS librarian and a librarian from our local branch library. This year, our TAB librarian will be Pat Loverich, from Central Library.

Schedule: because of virtual learning, TAB will also happen virtually. We are tentatively planning on holding TAB meetings on Monday afternoons. More information will be coming soon!
