Teen Advisory Group (T.A.G.)
Are you interested in making a difference? Join the TEEN Advisory Group at the William K. Sanford Town Library! By joining this group, you will have the opportunity to plan TEEN events and programs. Recently, this motivated group helped design and/or ran the very successful programs of The Kindness Club, the Knitting Club, night programs of Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, and Divergent, just to name a few!
Join fellow teens as they knit or crochet, or they can teach you how. You can work on your own project, learn something new, or be a part of a group project. In March, 2016 the Knitting Club proudly donated blankets to the YWCA that were constructed of 6″ square blocks crocheted or knitted by the Club, the adult Knitting Club, and members of the community.
