As we all know, having teens involved in your library is greatly beneficial to both teens and librarians. One of the best ways to invite teen involvement is by forming a Teen Advisory Group. TAGs can benefit everyone, from the smallest rural libraries to the largest city library.

The Teen Advisory Group interest group has been formed to provide a forum for the learning, discussion, promotion of Teen Advisory Groups (TAGs) as a critical part of library services to all teens.’  This includes library Teen Advisory Groups and all other forms of teens as advisors in libraries.’  The Interest Group will promote and maintain a YALSA TAGs online presence, including but not limited to blog postings and web site and wiki content.

Whether you’re just starting out, or already have a thriving group, the TAGS Interest Group wants to hear from you! If you’re interested in being the Convener or Co-Convener, please email me (Clio) at by May 3rd. Please join us as we expand our group!
