(KYTX) - Teenagers are getting a louder voice when it comes to programming at the Tyler Public Library.
The library has created a Teen Advisory Council, comprised of local teenagers who will help plan their own events.
Teenagers often volunteer at the library for the younger kids to get hours for National Honors Society or other service organizations but there aren't many events for them.
"So this is a way to keep them involved and gaining hours for these groups but they can also help us to plan things that are geared towards their age group."
The first Teen Advisory Council meeting is this Saturday at 1 p.m. in the library auditorium.
The meeting is open to anyone 12 to 18 years old.
