The Coralville Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of teens in 7th – 12th grade committed to helping the library. The board meets the first Monday of each month from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. to help with the planning and implementation of teen programs, recommend materials for the Library to purchase and talk about ways to make your library experience better. Don’t hesitate to talk to one of the board members if you have any ideas of suggestions for the Library.
