RE: TAG Meetings - Day & Time  Harrigan, Dymphna
 Dec 20, 2010 13:14 PST 
No matter what day and time you choose, someone will have a problem with
it. In addition, each year schedules and interests change. I find
attendance can be up and down depending on weather, school assignments,
time of year, etc.

I have had the Teen Council meetings on the first Monday of each month
from 4-5. When Monday is a holiday, we have it the second Monday.

I can give them a schedule in September, and parents really like this.
This has not changed in 10 years. Even so, I still have teens who will
call me to ask when the next meeting is.

Hope this helps.

Subject: {TAGAD-L} TAG Meetings - Day & Time

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?
