Gaines County Library System

TAG You're It!

FIRST WEDNESDAY of the MONTH @ 4:30 PM TAG is open to teens grades 6-12. If you know what you want to see in the library, if you have suggestions for books to order or programming you want to attend, contact us either at the Gaines County Library (704 Hobbs Hwy) or by phone (432-758-4007).

The Teen Advisory Group is a group of dedicated teens that share ideas about activities, materials, and changes to implement to make the Library a better place for Gaines County teens.

TAG is currently accepting applications for new members. Calendar year for TAG begins September, 1.
