Library

Our library is really great. I am going to miss it when we leave this town. We have been going to the library atleast once a week since the first week we moved here. I love this library. I also love the storytime and reading programs that they offer.

I have my library card number memorized and use it to reserve books online, renew my items, and search to see what's on-shelf. The library website is usually #1 on my favorites list on our computer.

Our library is also really attractive, with a nice open foyer and check-out area, a cool kids area with a fort to read on, and a new fancy coffee shop (I will have to see if they serve hot cocoa, too.)

Tonight the library is hosting a book-talk with Sue Grafton, the author of the ABC mysteries. She will be discussing her latest book "S is for Silence". I have never read any of her books before, so I checked out one of her books on Monday so that I could be part of the "in group", and so far it is good. Maybe I will get to go to the presentation tonight. Who knows, I could even win an autographed book!

How fun! We go to the library about once a month, we love it. I need to check out the story time since school started again. Michelle would love it!

I have enjoyed Sue Grafton's books, I've read A-R, haven't been able to check out S yet. Hope you had fun. Did you win an autographed book?

I love your blog. Keep it up. I have it booked marked and look forward to reading it. I think that I will encourage my daughter to create a blog.

Where are you moving to? I have not read your past blogs yet.

I really wanted to go, but I didn't make it. I had to teach the Activity Day girls, and we didn't get back until about 7:15pm and by then I just wanted to put on my jammies and go to bed. Bummer! I'm sure it was a fun night for those who went.

WE love our library branch that is within walking distance of our house. It is a small one, but they have a pretty good selection and it's easy to order books I can't find there. WE've been taking Lindsey to story time and she won't sit still! It's just too fun I guess!
