ABOUT THE YAAC
Read the newest books, socialize with friends, and attend parties, in a group where teen opinions count! Join the Young Adult Action Council (YAAC) and earn volunteer hours for school by planning upcoming teen programs, brainstorming ideas on how to make the library more teen-friendly, and assisting during select library programs such as Friday Night Library, library haunted house and trunk or treat, and the North Texas Teen Book Festival.
YAAC is open to all teens in grades 9-12 living in Irving or attending an Irving-area school. YAAC volunteers receive special perks such as invitations to special YAAC only events, and YAAC-exclusive library swag.
