MidKids Advisory Council (MAC) is a group of pre-teens in grades 4-6 who volunteer their time and service to the library and the community. This group of pre-teens plays a special role in our tween activities by giving their input on programming as well as what books or movies the library should order. MAC meets once a month during the school year and are always looking for new members. Drop in on one of the meetings for more information and discover what you can do for your library.
