Teens Earn Volunteer-Service Hours At Libraries’ Ya Advisory Councils

Fort Bend County Libraries offers programs specifically designed for high school-aged teens in grades 9 through 12. The programs provide fun and challenging opportunities for these young adults, who are also encouraged to become active participants in designing and orchestrating new activities for teens in the library system.

Teens can earn volunteer-service hours by participating in FBCL’s Young Adult Advisory Councils, where they can express ideas, help organize upcoming activities, and suggest new programs and books that would be of interest to teens at the library.

The May schedule of Young Adult Advisory Council meetings is as follows:

  • Mission Bend Branch Library– Tuesday, May 10, 4:00 pm, Meeting Room.
  • Cinco Ranch Branch Library– Wednesday, May 18, 4:00-5:00 pm, Conference Room.

In addition to the Young Adult Advisory Council meetings, Fort Bend County Libraries will offer the following Young Adult (YA) book clubs for the teen community.

  • Cinco Ranch Branch Library: YA Book Club – Wednesday, May 25, 4:00-5:00 pm. Conference Classroom. This month, readers will discuss Everything, Everything, written by Nicola Yoon. This title is available in print and digitally as an ebook on OverDrive; call the library to check availability of additional print copies.

The activities are free and open to the public. For more information, see FBCL’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call FBCL’s Communications Office (281-633-4734) or the branch libraries.
