In between meetings, teen volunteers can work on a variety of different projects.

  • Create displays and/or artwork for the teen area or kid's area
  • Be a Homework Room monitor
  • Write book reviews or articles for this blog
  • Help out at kid's events like our craft events, the FallFest, Stuffed Animal Sleepover, Dr. Seuss's Birthday Bash, and Star Wars Day
  • Help with our Virtual Reality Lab--
    • this includes installing updates, new games, reviewing games and experiences, and assisting with patron sign-up to use the Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch

We will train you & work around your schedule. You do need to be at least 14 to volunteer, although you may attend & participate in TAG meetings as long as you are at least 13. You must complete and submit a volunteer application. All volunteering, including your participation in the TAG meetings,  counts towards community service projects for school, church or other organizations. 


This free program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the
 Tulare County Library. No registration required. All supplies provided.
Learn more about TAG and other teen events at www.tclteens.org. Involvement in TAG counts toward school and church community service projects, and it is terrific job experience. Not to mention how great it looks on your college applications to be involved with a library advisory group! Most importantly, you’ll make new life-long friends =)

Ship of Smoke and Steel, by Django Wexler

In the lower wards of Kahnzoka, the great port city of the Blessed Empire, eighteen-year-old ward boss Isoka enforces the will of her criminal masters with the power of Melos, the Well of Combat. The money she collects goes to keep her little sister living in comfort, far from the bloody streets they grew up on.
