Grades 6-12. Aurora Library's Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is a forum where teens can help their community and get a say in what programs they think the library should offer. Right now we have the unique challenge of brainstorming ways the library can educate, entertain, and bring people together (virtually) in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. New members are always welcome, and participation counts as volunteer time.
