Cross over children. All are welcome. All welcome. Go into the Light. There is peace and serenity in the Light.

(from Poltergeist)

So anyway, just like Tangina Barrons says, (the Clarivoyant from Poltergeist) all are welcome… to go into the library! I really want to start a TAG, otherwise known as a Teen Advisory Group. Here is some more information about them. This site has other links to libraries that already have TAGs in place… and a sample of what one library has done at their meeting. Tell me what you think, and if you’d like to join us. I will (of course) provide food when possible.

Youth Advisory Committee Meeting Agenda
1. Brainstorm sessions
* What do you find in a school locker? (5 minutes)
* We need tribe names for 6-10 Survivor teams (8 minutes)
* Commercials for popular topic materials if you’re stranded on a deserted island or caught in some disaster (15 minutes)
2. Prop Making(18 minutes)
Divide up the tasks among the attendees and make Survivor team name tokens on card stock
* posterboard of suspects and victims
* cut out pop culture items for bulletin board
* newscaster cue cards
