Newark Teen Volunteer Opportunities - Teen Advisory Group

The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is a way for you to get involved at the library level. It’s more than just suggesting programs, it's making a real difference for teens in the Newark community. You can help run your own program, start a service for teens, create a teen zine, make things to sell at Newark Library League book sales, add or take away things from the Newark teen collection, and more!

Snacks and drinks are provided.

TAG meetings will be held twice a month in person on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month, 5:30pm-7pm, with a break halfway through. Free snacks and drinks. Meetings take place at the Newark Library, in the Teen Lounge, on the second floor. There is no minimum duration commitment, but we are looking for TAG members who will attend as often as possible.


  • Be in grades 7-12
  • Attend regularly scheduled TAG meetings

If you are interested in attending, please fill out an application and will respond to you as soon as we can.

After you apply, you will receive an e-mail response within 24-48 hours, depending on when you apply. Please check your Spam folder for that response, if you don't see it in your Inbox.

*Note for parents/legal guardians: please have your teen fill out the application since they will be the one volunteering.

**Note for first time applicants: When you apply, please do not enter a school e-mail address. Any e-mails to school e-mail addresses from outside organizations will bounce back.
