Friends of the Carl and Mary Welhausen Library Teen Advisory Committee
The Friends of the Carl and Mary Welhausen Teen Advisory Committee (TAC) is a volunteer group of responsible and
dedicated individuals ranging from ages 12-18 who are committed to making a difference in the Library and their Community.
This committee operates under the direction of the Friends of the Library Board. Members will have a vital role in helping
develop the junior and young adult collections, with community outreach, event and program planning, publicity, and
volunteering. TAC members gain community service hours, great leadership skills and meet new people, as they participate
and assist, as a team, in organizing certain events and programs throughout the year.

This group of young people is very active in the development of programs, the teen section, and other activities for the youth
in Yoakum.  
Current projects include the furnishing of the teen section, fundraising for new books and furniture, the
formation of a book club, children's & teen programming for the summer of 2017, and a food drive. The
deliverance of these projects will depend on the availability of funding.

Open Enrollment for this committee is generally held during the month of August.  The service year will run from September 1
through August 31.
