The library is looking for a dedicated group of readers to serve on our advisory and selection board for the 2016-2017 Teen Advisory Group (TAG) list.  This activity also qualifies as Community Service based on a model developed by the Johnson County Library.  For each book read, you may earn 2 hours of service and for each meeting you attend you will earn 1 hour. 

As a reader selector, you have the opportunity to help select books for the 2017-2018 Trendy Twelve List.  The books are student-selected to provide quality reading for Prairie Star Middle School students and appeal to a wide variety of tastes and interests.  Students from other Blue Valley middle schools are also participating.  The Trendy Twelve is for students in the sixth through eighth grades. We meet as a TAG group once a month from September - February to discuss the books we’ve been reading and compare notes! This is not a book club per se.  You are reading independently from a list of 20-25 titles.  (The number varies slightly each year based on the winnowing of the copyright list by BV Library Media Specialists). Each member is responsible for reading each of the  titles on our list.  There is no specific order in which you have to read the books, but all books must be read by  the end of spring break.

Additionally, TAG members serve in an advisory capacity for library programming and assist with book fairs and library promotions as needed. Your ideas and suggestions are key to providing an engaging, student-centered media center!
