Teen Advisory Boards

The Forsyth County Public Library branch locations have Teen Advisory Boards that meet once a month to discuss ways to improve their library's service to teens. Our Teen Advisory Boards help to plan programs, create displays, and suggest resources that the library should purchase. The Forsyth County Public Library's Teen Advisory Boards are made up of our teen volunteers (Ages 12-18). Sign-up for our spring Teen Advisory Boards that meet from January to April is now open.
