Teen Board Holds First Meeting

The New Carlisle Public Library met for the first time this past Friday.

The members decided that their first project will be collecting donations for a box to be sent to American soldiers serving in Iraq. If you can donate an item, please bring it to Maggie at the library, or give it to one of the library's Teen Board members.

Donations must be received by March 1, 2009.

Board members also decided to go with the "Express Yourself" theme for Teen Summer Reading this year, and they will be helping with the Reading Buddies tutoring program during the summer of 2009. Members decided that the teen reading club should once again include a silent auction; Ethan volunteered to serve as an auctioneer. We will need other volunteers for the auction; can you help?!

We will meet again on the first Friday of each month, 4:00 p.m.
