After two bake sales, a read-a-thon (photos coming soon) and some help from the Friends of the Newark Public Library, we will be getting a bus to the Teen Book Festival on Saturday April 4, 2009.

If you want to be a part of this even, come to the Teen Spot and get a permission slip.

The slip has to be filled out and signed by your parent or guardian. There is also a line for your signature on this permission slip. It says that you agree to behave appropriately for the safety and fun of all participants on the field trip.
This agreement is an important part of the permission slip.

The signed form need to be returned to the Newark Public Library's Teen Spot by Thursday April 2nd.
