Teen Programs

Teen Programs are designed for teens, by teens. Join TAG to help develop teen programming at our library!

Want to be involved in your library, connect with other teens, and have fun?

Join the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) at the Jonesborough and Gray Libraries. Teens from grades 6-12 are eligible to apply for membership.

  • Jonesborough TAG meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
  • Gray TAG meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

TAGs in each building have helped design the teen areas in the libraries and raised money to furnish the spaces. The group gives input on books, magazines, music and movies to purchase for teens; volunteers on a regular basis in the library; helps to plan the Teen Program Night for all teens; and often volunteers to assist with children’s programs and Summer Reading.

Teens who join and attend TAG meetings earn one (1) volunteer hour per meeting.
