What does TAG do?

Surrey Libraries' TAG members help make the library a great place for teens!

  • Help plan and develop teen programs at the library
  • Give feedback on the library's collection (books, music, movies), and on the library's Teen Central website
  • Suggest improvements for the library to better serve teens
  • Volunteer to help run programs and community events  

TAG earns you volunteer credit hours for attending meetings and participating in youth programs.
