Youth Advisory Board


Do you love to read? Would you like to read books before they are published? Do you like sharing your opinions? If you answered YES to all of these questions, we’d love to have you apply to be a member of our Youth Advisory Board (YAB)!

What is the Youth Advisory Board?

As a bookstore, we get many Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) from publishers. These are books that haven’t been published yet. Our Youth Advisory Board members help us to read all these books and let us know what they think about them and whether or not we should buy copies to put in our store.


This group of 9-12 year olds meets once a month to talk about ARCs they’ve read and to share their opinions and recommendations.

If this sounds like something you'd like to do, email for all the details and an application.
