Youth Advisory Council

The YAC (Youth Advisory Council) group is a volunteer team of teens that meet once a month. At the meeting, members make suggestions for the library to purchase, help plan teen programs, assist with cutting, folding, assembling, or other projects, discuss what's popular in teen books, magazines, music, and movies, and/or decorate the teen room in the library. YAC also helps out at various events and programs, such as CamTown, Camas Days, and the Summer Reading Program. Snacks always provided at the meetings!


The first Monday of the month 4-5pm. Runs year-round.


Any teen between the ages of 13 and 18. You can apply any time of the year!
