Teen Action Committee

The Teen Action Committee (TAC) at the Caldwell Public Library is a group of teens interested in positively engaging in the Caldwell community through Library programs, activities, and projects. TAC provides opportunities for teens to take on leadership roles in a safe environment. Our meetings are safe-spaces where all Caldwell-West Caldwell and West Essex students in grades 8 and up are welcome. Teens who live in the towns assigned to these schools but who attend other schools / are home schooled are welcome to join as well. 


TAC members are required to complete volunteer projects throughout the year, with a minimum of 1 project every 3-4 months (though they may do more.)   Active members also earn volunteer/community service hours for attending meetings. TAC meetings are generally a blend of time to socialize, plan/brainstorm/prep TAC led programs, and unwind from the week/play games.
