Donate Video Games

Video Game Donation Drive Update

In November of 2013 TAB started a Video Game Donation Drive in an effort to start a Video Game collection at the Library. As of June 2014, the Main Library's Video Game Collection is live!  You can check out the games available to borrow from the library in our online catalog here.  There are Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2 and PS3 games available currently, hopefully with new ones coming in the near future.  Thanks so much to everyone who donated games to help get this collection started!!


What Do TAB Members Do?

TAB members attend monthly board meetings in order to share their ideas, help to plan future events/services for teens, and work toward making the library a teen-friendly space in our community.

TAB members participate in library programs, volunteer their time to work on special projects, and help make sure that teen-focused events and programs at the library run smoothly.

TAB members act as ambassadors for the Library by getting their friends involved, sharing information about upcoming library events with friends and teachers at school, and bringing back input and suggestions from the community.

TAB members contribute to the library's Teen Blog by writing book reviews and other content to post online.  See the Orange County Social Media Policy.
