We have just started a YYAC here as well. I require them to fill out and
submit an application to become a member, so one of the questions was
providing two of your preferred dates and times for meeting. I think I
got lucky and most of them agreed on Tuesday afternoons, so now we meet
on the 3rd Tuesday monthly. Good attendance so far and growing!

I've been working with teens for the past 10 years and our TAB group
meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 4-5 p.m. I have book
club immediately following the TAB meeting which catches more teen for
book discussion. We meet for around a half-hour to discuss our book of
the month. This works really well as it allows teens to accommodate
book discussion in their very busy schedules. We usually do one program
a month for teens which, on the whole, is very well attended. It really
pays to listen to your TAB group as they know what teens want.

Have a great day!

I have just recently started a TAG group at my library. At our first
meeting, I gave the teens two choices for meetings, a Saturday afternoon
or Thursday evening. They voted on Thursday evening. We now meet the
second Thursday of the month from 6-7 p.m. Attendance has been good so

Hey everyone,

Our teen council has been meeting the 1st Wednesdays of the month at
4:30 p.m. for the past two years. I recently surveyed our group since
meeting attendance has been low lately...though program attendance is
still high!

They're all split on what they want during the school year. Some are
asking that we move meetings to Saturdays at 2pm. Others would like to
meet more often--maybe twice a month. And some want to keep it the

If you have a teen advisory group/council, when do you meet (day &
time)? And how often? I'm interested in what has worked for others in
meeting the demands of these teens' crazy busy schedules. I would like
to boost meeting attendance without running off my steady regulars.

Help, please! What's a librarian to do?
