Teen Advisory Board (TAB, for short)

Last fall a group of teens who regularly use the Solon Public Library took steps to unite and organize a board aimed at the interests of middle and high school students. Under the direction of Deena Foss, youth services coordinator, the group of teens created a five-person Teen Advisory Board (TAB), whose main goal is to encourage teens to enjoy the library. Planning to meet once per month, this energetic board has met several times a month to get the organization off the ground.

Solon Large Group Speech to district competition

Solon Large Group Speech went to Monticello for district contest on Saturday, Jan. 21. Kaitlin Schlotfelt and Sammy Eckrich performed a piece that you may have seen last spring at our play festival by a local playwright, Brian Tanner. “21st Century Espionage” is a comedic depiction of introducing social media to the old-fashioned spy game.
