Norfolk Library Teen Space

The Norfolk Library is in the final stages of creating a space dedicated to the teen population. Our hope is that teens will come to view the library as a place they can gather for educational, social, and community engagement. The designated teen space, in the rear alcove of the Library, will be known as “The Owl Cove,” and will include teen friendly furniture, cyber bar, printer, monitor, and work table.

Teen Advisory Council

The Teen Advisory Council (TAC) is a group of teens, grades 9 to 12, from Norfolk who are interested in having a say in what the library does for them. Five teens will be selected for the TAC.

Why apply to the TAC?

  • Help make decisions about materials and programs at the library
  • Receive a $50 per month stipend
  • Community service and leadership experience look good on college applications and job applications

What is expected of TAC members?

  • Regularly attend meetings, which are twice a month for an hour
  • Be an active participant in the council by sharing and implementing ideas
  • Serve as a library representative to peers, which includes asking peers for suggestions for library materials and programs and then reporting back to the TAC
  • Attend at least two teen library events

Applications for the 2022-2023 TAC are now closed.
