TAB -- Teen Advisory Board


TAB is a book discussion group, co-sponsored by Arlington's secondary school and public librarians. Middle and high school students read recently published works of young adult literature and share their reactions about what they read. Their comments follow guidelines about how to talk about books – without giving a “book report” -- and help both library systems make informed choices about what to provide for their teen readers.  TAB students also have the opportunity to read Advanced Readers Copies (ARC's) of material not yet published.

Ms. Paula Ruskiewicz of Arlington Public Library  and Ms Holly Ousley, Kenmore Librarian, sponsor Kenmore's TAB group that meets every other Thursday during lunch.  During the 2012-2013 school year TAB members had an opportunity to meet and have lunch with Gary Karton, author of The Last Akaway, a 2013 Kenmore TAB pick.

At the end of each school year, TAB The list of Kenmore’s TAB Picks for last school year are now available.  If you're looking for a good book to read, consider one of the following titles:members vote for their favorites and publish a list of TAB Picks for the year.
