teensReach is the youth council for the San José Public Library, providing a key way for young adults to build their leadership skills by developing and participating in library activities, as well as becoming library advisors and advocates. Some of the activities teensReach members have been involved in include: children's craft programs, volunteering at our Summer Reading Celebration registration table, and representing San José Public Library at community events. Members are recruited from all neighborhoods throughout San José and participate through teensReach chapters at local branch libraries.
