Well the dog days of summer are not far off and Summer Reading has been in full swing but what about TAGs? Here at Teen Central we are taking the summer to regroup and come up with a plan for next year talking about projects and programs that our TAG will be heading up. The summer can go either way…the TAG can be up and running strong or sleeping late and days at the pool can seem much more attractive to TAG members.

What are some of the activities that you use to keep you TAG involved during the summer? What are some of the strategies that people have found worked best when your TAG started to drag? Does anyone have a virtual TAG during the summer?

    Lisa Younbgblood, TAGS Committee

    School in our area starts on August 16! My teen volunteers and TAB members have been working hard all summer. They have most enjoyed writing our “Origami Fruit” teen newsletter, assisting with our children’s programs, and writing and compiling reviews and booklists. I try to avoid having most of my teens front books and sign kids up for summer reading club unless the teens have specifically voiced interests in such tasks. My teens are very project driven and tend to work best when they are involved in planning a project.
