Teen Advisory Board
The job of a Teen Advisory Board is to help choose materials for the Teen Corner, to assist in planning events, to help raise money for teen programs and projects, and generally have fun. Plus, it looks good on your college applications! We meet once per month, but the dates and times vary. Please email Gretchen Ipock at grrllibrarian@yahoo.com or call her at Sellers Library (610-789-4440) to join.

Lota and lots of stuff, isn't there? Anyway, my teacher hung up both Writer's Workshop signs, and I saw a bunch of people looking at them. Hopefully a few of them will sign up!
