Teen Library Council

The Portage County Public Library Teen Library Council (TLC) involves our teen patrons in furthering the mission of the library by seeking their ideas on programs, services, and materials, as well as facilitating opportunities for them to serve the community. By attending monthly meetings, the teens are involved in promoting reading, selecting new materials, and planning events while building a supportive teen environment. Teens act as ambassadors at library and community events to increase library awareness, build their service skills, and promote a safe and friendly environment for themselves and other teens in the community.
