Teen Library Council


What is the Teen Library Council?

The Teen Library Council (TLC) offers teens in grades 8–12 from all over North Central Washington the opportunity to make a positive difference in their communities and have input in the way the library serves teens. The council will meet monthly to develop programs and resources for the library that fulfill the needs and interests of teens.
