Teen Advisory Group

We are deeply saddened to announce the cancellation of the upcoming Teen Advisory Group meeting, scheduled to take place on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. We have been closely monitoring the escalating spread of coronavirus COVID-19 outbreaks in British Columbia and globally, and in light of recent city advisories,  Burnaby Public Library is cancelling all programs and closing all of our library branches starting Wednesday, March 18. 
Please check back here for updates on the status of future meetings, or email  Andrea Lukic for more information.

What is the Teen Advisory Group?

The Teen Advisory Group is for teens who want to make the library better for themselves and other teens. The library belongs to teens as much as anyone else in the community, so we want to know what you'd like to see from us--whether it's physical space, stuff you can borrow, programs you wish we had, or places you wish we visited.

The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is a diverse, inclusive group of teens from the Burnaby community interested in championing and improving teen library services in Burnaby.  The overall goal of TAG is to help improve teen library engagement.  TAG advises plans, creates and promotes library services as the voice of the teen Burnaby community.

We are meeting at the Tommy Douglas library branch to discuss different topics that will help us and you make changes to the library. Food will be provided during the meeting, and all teens are welcome to join us for a movie after the meeting.

How to Join?

All teens are welcome to join, including those who come to the library regularly and those who have never used the library before. Just drop by a meeting to see if it's for you. All teens will receive a letter confirming their community service to the library. 

Next Teen Advisory Group meeting: TBD
