Looking for somewhere to volunteer?

Look no further; fulfill your community service needs here at the East Islip Public Library!

Every month, we host a Teen Advisory Board meeting.  Not only do you get to talk about books, music and library programs, you are welcome to share any ideas and suggestions you may have for ways that we can improve! 

Current members describe TAB as a fun way to earn community service and see your fellow EIHS and EIMS friends.  New members are always welcome and any member who participates will receive one hour of community service.

Sign up for a TAB meeting here; our next meeting is Tuesday, November 1.  We look forward to seeing you there!
