Next Meeting: TAG Summer Party on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 form 6:30-7:30PM
This last Wednesday, July 27, 2016, we started the Teen Advisory Group Meeting at 6:30PM. Over 10 volunteers were in attendance. We completed surveys for the fall program line-up. Hannah brought up a a possible game-lending service that works only on PC and Android, but it was shot down by the survey results.
The Super Smash Bros. Tournament was approved and will occur on August 17. Fall volunteer opportunities will include Teens Teach Kids and technology training at Crane’s Mill.
Big news: Hannah is looking into purchasing Augmented Reality services for the library via the Zappar App! This means we will be able to link resources to an image that can be scanned with the Zappar App, post video reviews directly on a book, and link books to other books just like it.
We filmed a video for the AR. Check out the librarian’s samples below!

We kicked off the Teen Advisory Group meeting on Wednesday, 1/28/16 with food and introductions. The following people were present:
The new Teen Librarian, Hannah, showed off an epic failure of an attempted Valentine’s Decoration, passed out the Teen Volunteer Survey to be completed, and proceeded to introduce the upcoming programs for the month of February. They include the following:
The Anti-Valentine’s Day program was approved. Recommendations on the chocolate to be eaten were taken. The Trivia program was approved, but with some complaint of it being on a Saturday.
Hannah then introduced the program ideas for the upcoming few months.
Upcoming Programs for Teens:
It was decided that the High School Musical Movie Night and Trivia would be limited to grades 7 and up. The Upcycle Craft would have prizes awarded to the most “creative” final product. The Kite-Building activity would be limited to grades 5-9. There was some back and forth about the timing of the PrankShop activity, but since most people who are involved in the Musical would not be able to attend anything prior to April 5th, it stayed the same. The Apocalypse Prep night would include activities from The 5th Wave.
New ideas brought to the table were the possibility of having an Anti-Prom Netflix Night in May, a Poetry Slam in April, and a Summer Reading Kick-off Lock-In with attached Scavenger Hunt, Bad Karaoke Contest, and Bad Movie Night. There was also some interest in the Teens Teach Kids program starting in June and the possibility of having “mini-events” every other week that would involve some drop-in activity. Ideas for this are TBA.
We then discussed the changes to be made to the current Teen Area. Next month, Hannah will bring image designs to be approved and we will work on a presentation to share with the Board of Trustees in May or June.
In general, it was a hilarious night and we ended by making a CubeCraft.
And there will be Stop & Shop popcorn and water bottles!
