The Library’s Teen Advisory Group (TAG) offers an opportunity for teens ages 12–18 to get a closer look at the behind-the-scenes work of the Library, meet other bookworms in the community, and share ideas about the Library’s teen programs, services, and collections!


TAG 2022–2023 is full. Applications will be open from 31 March through 31 July 2023 for TAG 2023–2024.

The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is designed to energize teen programming and services as well as allow teens a greater voice at the Library. Members of this group provide valuable feedback to the Library while earning community service hours. The group is open to Library members ages 12–18 by application.

Members of this group are asked to:

  • Brainstorm suggestions for future teen programs
  • Help with preparation of programs
  • Offer input and suggestions about policies
  • Advise on furnishings and decorations for the Teen Mezzanine
  • Offer opinions on selected books that we are considering adding to our collections
  • Promote the Library as a great place to be, to work, to study, and to read


Meetings are held one Friday a month from 17h30-18h30, at The American Library in Paris. Applications for the 2022–2023 season opened in May 2022 and closed on 12 August 2022 at 23h00 for the 2022–2023 Teen Advisory Group.

Applications will be open between 31 March 2023 and 31 July 2023 for the 2023–2024 Teen Advisory Group, and will close on 31 July 2023 at 22h00. Teen Library members between the ages of 12 and 18 are welcome to apply. Click here to apply for the 2023–2024 Teen Advisory Group. Applicants will be informed in early August about their application status for the 2023-2024 Teen Writing Group. Please note that this is a small group, and we will accept a limited number of participants.
