Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

The Teen Advisory Board is a group of teens from Bartholomew County who meet monthly with the Teen Libarian to advise on matters of teen services, programming, selection of teen materials, event planning, and more. To join, just attend the next TAB meeting (these are typically held the last Monday of the month).

Are you seeking a dose of love and self care?

Sign up for our Teen Book Boxes!

These monthly boxes mirror subscription services like OwlCrate or LootCrate, except our boxes are FREE!
Each month, you will receive a box filled with 2-3 library books selected based on your preferences along with other goodies like bookmarks, crafts, small self-care items, snacks, and handwritten notes from Teen Services staff.
CURRENT BOX: March 2024
THEME: springtime
REGISTRATION OPEN through March 15, 2024
You MUST register by 3/15/2024 to receive a March box. Your box will be available in March.
We are no longer accepting registration for the February box. If you registered for a February box, you will receive your box in by the end of the month.
Your registration does not renew automatically. You MUST register for each month's box. 
This program is only available for teens in grades 7-12. 

Virtual Programs


Much like our physical space, this online chat forum is exclusive to teens (grades 7-12). Until we begin to have in-person programs later in the year, teen programs will be hosted on Discord, so please spread the word and encourage your teens to join. Email Dakota at [email protected] to get an invite link to the official BCPL Teen discord server, monitored by your Teen Services staff.
