TAB  – Teen Advisory Board or Teens Talking About Books

What is TAB book club?

TAB stands for Teen Advisory Board (and Teens Talking About Books). It’s a book club sponsored by the Arlington County Public Library, which means we get a super awesome Arlington County public librarian who comes to our TAB meetings! At TAB, we’ll talk about the books we’re reading, hear recommendations from other students, and do fun bookish activities. We also have a yearly author visit field trip where we meet with other APS Middle School TAB groups and get to meet a fantastic middle grade author!

What are the TAB book club books?

We don’t have an assigned book list in TAB. That means you get to choose what you want to read! At TAB, you can share all about the books you’re reading and hear recommendations from other students.

Meet your TAB book club librarians!

Ms. Smith, a public librarian at Glencarlyn Public Library, and Ms. Fulliton, your Kenmore librarian, will lead TAB at Kenmore!
