Teen Advisory Board Principles

The Springfield City Library Teen Advisory Board is rooted in the principles of respect, humility, and acceptance. We welcome teens of all racial and ethnic groups, religious affiliations, financial backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, and abilities. It’s important that we work together to make a safe, fun space for all, where we celebrate the things that make you who you are!

If you have questions about the Teen Advisory Board, email Sarah Hodge-Wetherbe at SHodge-Wetherbe@springfieldlibrary.org or call (413) 263-6828 ext. 425.

We’re excited to collaborate with you!
