TEEN ADVISORY BOARD
What is the Teen Advisory Board?
TAB is a group of library teen volunteers that not only helps the library and community, but takes an active leadership role in implementing programs, promoting, and advocating for youth services in Medfield! We are just getting started again after taking over a year off for COVID, but we’re ready and excited to talk about a new name, new projects, and new ideas! We’re meeting OUTSIDE AT THE GAZEBO to begin our Haunted House planning!
Open to ages 10 and up! (Psst, this is an EXCELLENT way to accumulate those community service hours!)
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16TH @6PM REGISTER HERE
TAB meetings will be held every third Wednesday at 6pm; may be subject to change based on the needs/preferences of the teens.
VIRTUAL DUNGEONS & DRAGONS - SESSION 1
D&D is the most fun played in person with some pizza, but for now we’ll settle for playing virtually! Join us for a Dungeons and Dragons online game…for now we’re playing via Zoom, so all you need is internet, a webcam, a microphone, and Zoom. We also recommend having paper and pencil or some other method of taking notes on your character.
We are providing the story and set up, all you need is your imagination 🙂 Beginners are welcome! Never played a role playing game before? We can help set up character sheets to get you started. Our first session is Tuesday June 29th from 4-6pm and we will be going over characters, how to play, and our game plan.
AGES 10 & UP. MUST REGISTER TO GET ZOOM LINK.
SESSION 1 – JUNE 29, JULY 6, JULY 13, JULY 20
