What do past YAC members say about their experience? 

I made a lot of new friends. It's cool to talk to other nerds.

It's fun and a great way to be involved in the community.

I really enjoy taking part in the meetings.

[My favourite part was] the honest conversations.

I really enjoyed talking about big issues, like Freedom to Read Week and sexism in YA literature.

I liked that we didn't just talk about books, but other issues in our community/world.
