T.A.B. is a book club where students read and review new books for the library. The Arlington County Public Library has T.A.B. groups in all five public middle schools and a high school group that meets monthly at the Central Library. At the end of every school year, each school's T.A.B. group votes for its favorite titles from the year. The Arlington Public Library then adds short descriptions to each title and make the lists available in all of its Young Adult areas. This helps students find out which books other students liked and what was hot in different schools.
To join Swanson's T.A.B. group, just attend a meeting. You will get to read and review new books from the Public Library and let the grown-ups know what you think. Students are expected read at least one book for month of any type or length.
An informational letter containing policies and TAB dates was distributed at the beginning of the year. TAB letter
