If you are a middle school student, you don't even have to leave the comfort of your school to go to TAB. Each school is different, but it's most likely that you'd meet during your lunch break once or twice a month. You'll be the only ones to check out the special collection of TAB books and you get to talk about them with other students, your school librarian and a public librarian. It's a fun way to get your hands on a lot of books that might otherwise have a reaaaallly long holds list.
And, in the spring, you and your classmates will vote on the top 10 books from the collection and your picks will be put on bookmarks that go to all the schools and the public libraries.

Just like with the middle school group, you get first dibs at a selection of awesome books (check out the picture on the left and you can get a glimpse of some we are really excited about) and vote on a top 10 at the end of the year.
It's also a fun time to get to talk to teens from other schools and learn what everyone has been reading in school and out. It's fun, it can get a little heated (especially if we're talking about Holden Caulfield) and we think that if you like books you'll have a great time hanging out with this group.
