What Does the TAB Do?

Activities may include:

  • giving advice on new programs
  • testing new technology, kits, and supplies to use in Teen programs
  • taking Google surveys
  • recommending books, graphic novels, and videogames for the Teen Collection
  • helping plan special Teen or Tween programs (i.e. Halloween Costume Contest)
  • assisting with a Teen or Tween program (Tween Late Night)
  • assisting with a special project

Minecraft: Moderators + Special Projects

We now have a Teen Moderator category on the Morse Library’s 24/7 Minecraft Server! We're looking for players 13 & up who are patient, like to help others, and enjoy coming up with games and/or projects! We are not currently accepting any Teen Moderator applications.

Minecraft Moderators play on the Morse Library’s 24/7 Minecraft Server and attend weekly gaming sessions when possible. They have access to special commands and use them to help other players in game. Teen Moderators also help Robin with special Minecraft events, such as Tournaments or Minecraft After Hours.

Current commands available:

  • setting time & weather
  • teleporting
  • basic World Edit commands

Who’s eligible to apply?
Teens ages 13-18 that:

  • have already been approved for access to the Morse Library’s 24/7 Minecraft Server
  • have their own PC Minecraft account
  • have been playing on the 24/7 Server for at least 5 months
  • are in good standing with no Code of Conduct violations
  • have permission from their Parent/Guardian

Teen Minecraft Moderator Application
To be approved as a Teen Moderator, fill out the Morse Library’s Minecraft Teen Moderator Application (note: it’s two pages), have your parent/guardian sign it, and email a scan or picture of the completed application to Robin: We are not currently accepting any Teen Moderator applications.

Looking to fill Community Services hours? We need help with:

  • building cool content
