Teen Advisory Board

Do you know what teens in Lawrence want? Join the Teen Advisory Board (TAB) and be one of the masterminds behind the Teen Zone! The TAB meets monthly at the library to help make decisions about the Teen Zone space and plan awesome events for Lawrence teens. Email Miriam at or drop by the Teen Zone for more information.

If you want to join the TAB, please fill out this form and submit it to Teen Zone staff.


Looking for an ongoing volunteer opportunity at the library? VolunTeens may be for you! VolunTeens must be in 7-12th grade and able to commit to 1 or 2 hours per week to help with shelving and/or programs. An application for the program can be found here. Bring the complete form and a letter of recommendation to the Teen Zone desk. We’ll be looking for new VolunTeens at the start of Fall, Spring, and again in Summer.

Email Miriam at with any questions.

Social Media Ambassadors

Are you obsessed with finding and sharing stories online? Do your friends look to you on to find out what’s going on, both in Lawrence and around the world? Are you interested in books, music, video games, movies and TV, technology, and pop culture? Are you comfortable using various social media platforms, like Twitter and Tumblr? Do you love the library? Then you could apply to be a Social Media Ambassador! This opportunity is for teens in 10th-12th grades. Get the details here.


New programs are offered every month just for teens. Check out our online calendar or pick up a printed copy at any desk in the library. Our programs are always free and we’d love to have you there.
